"I was elated. I mean this was the largest donation of wigs we'd ever received," says Nancy Estes, Director of the Cancer Services Network in Abilene.
It's not just a family business for Kenneth Killian. He lost his wife last July. After she died, he inherited her wig shop along with the various hairpieces.
Killian says, "I had a bunch of wigs and an 88year old man don't need that many wigs."
So he decided to donate them in honor of his late wife. 300 wigs, given to the the Cancer Services Network -- free of charge.
"I was just blown away by the generosity of this gentleman that was thinking of others," says Estes.
Killian says it was his wife Eva's generosity that inspired him.
"Eva had them come in here and they start crying because they're losing their hair," says Killian adding, "and she would sell them back to wholesale cost. She wouldn't make a dime or a penny on it because she knew what they were going through."
"It was bittersweet, because he was mourning the loss of his wife, but at the same time, he wanted to do something to honor Eva," says Estes.
Killian proclaims, "I finally found somebody that I think will do a great job with those wigs."
