TORONTO - June 14, 2018 - PRLog -- The country's oldest and longest-serving private wig salon, Sunnybrook Wig Salon, turns 20! And to celebrate, Sunnybrook salon founder and the owner of Continental Hair, Michael Suba, is commemorating the occasion by hosting a luncheon to celebrate the nurses, doctors, medical staff and patients that have supported the boutique salon for the last two decades. Everyone is invited to attend the anniversary event at Sunnybrook's M6 Atrium on Friday, June 15th, 2018 from Noon-2pm. The event will include remarks from Suba, food, drink and a token of appreciation.

Sunnybrook hospital holds a special place in Suba's heart, which he credits with saving his life when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease as well as his parents, through heart surgery. It was Suba's own stint as a patient undergoing treatment that inspired him to start this in-hospital location. After being diagnosed, Suba underwent treatment alongside a number of patients who he learned were clients of his parents. Most of them women, they opened up to him about how having a well-made wig, and a compassionate ear, helped them manage one of the dreaded side-effects of treatment, hair loss. While he had no intention of being involved in the family business prior, these interactions with patients made him realize just how important his parents' Yorkville wig salon was to the women who had suffered hair loss due to treatment and he vowed to create a salon at the hospital if he survived. His goal was to offer an accessible wig salon that specialized in hair loss solutions for people undergoing cancer treatment, offering them an on-site location that saved them a trip downtown, in the privacy of the hospital, and that would be alleviate them of another 'chore' while trying to negotiate the fear and pain.

Celebrating 50+ years as the pre-eminent leader of hair replacement solutions in Canada, Continental Hair Ltd. was established in 1964 by husband-and-wife team Peter and Emma Suba. Maintaining the legacy of personalized service and the highest quality products that Emma and Peter were reputed for, Continental Hair has become the go-to salon for innovative, high-quality human hair systems and solutions.

"I'm humbled to be celebrating 20 years of partnership with the amazing team at the Odette Cancer Centre as well as our patients." Says Michael, "This is just a small way to say thank you to the remarkable group of nurses and doctors who work endlessly to support their patients, and to the patients themselves who are nothing but inspirational; being able to celebrate with them is an honour."
