Bauer struggled to locate the right wig, spending up to $2,000 for one, but eventually found several that suited her. Her wig experience is what led her to open Lulu's Wiggin Out, with the mission to help women who have lost their hair due to illness.
She is now cancer free and passing on her wig wisdom to those who are currently battling the disease by offering them an assortment of wigs for any occasion.
"I encourage women to be more creative," she told the news source. "I tell women, 'You can have fun. You can be the blonde you always wanted to be. You can have that curly hair you always wanted.'"
