For more than 20 years a Tampa Heights resident has been making wigs for women undergoing chemotherapy. Now those women are giving back, after Christine Heinen’s home and business caught fire over the weekend.
Heinen continues to dig through the damage, trying to determine what may be salvageable following the electrical fire.
“I still haven’t even actually cried yet, I still think that’s coming in another two weeks,” said Heinen.
Despite all the furniture and belongings that were lost, what firefighters were able to save could be considered irreplaceable. It’s locks of hair.
