SELF-IMAGE RESOURCES & SERVICES

Self-image resources are available to help patients and their family members adapt to changes in body-image experienced throughout their cancer journey. This may include physical changes as a result of treatment, as well as sexual health and intimacy concerns.

The Belk Boutique at Duke Cancer Center Durham as well as the boutiques at Duke Cancer Center Raleigh and Duke Women's Cancer Care Raleigh offer the latest trends in wigs, hats, caps, scarves, self-image products, post-surgical garments and prosthetics. Private consultation rooms are available. 

In each boutique location, we have a complimentary section for patients in active treatment to help them through their cancer journey. All items are offered to patients at no cost. The complimentary section contains functional items to help patients deal with side effects of cancer treatment. Typical items offered include turbans, caps, scarves and port pillows. The complimentary section also contains comfort items such as hand crafted blankets and pillows to provide patients with items that lift their spirits and let them know they are supported during their cancer experience.
