CWHL PROVIDES HAIR REPLACEMENTS AT NO COST TO CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS
According to CWHL’s official website, it is a non-profit organisation that provides human hair replacements at no cost to children and young adults facing medically-related hair loss. It opened in September 2000. The organization was able to purchase their first building in 2005. The headquarters resides in South Rockwood, Michigan in an old renovated fire station. Currently, the organization provides a customized human hair replacement and care kit to over 600 children a year.
The founder of the organization is Regina Villemure, a former cosmetology instructor, hairstylist and hair replacement specialist with a master certification with the American Hair Loss Council. She founded CWHL after her niece, Sarah, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at age three.
JOE HAS LARGELY BEEN A COMMENTATOR FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS
Since suffering a broken thumb in a match in 2019, Joe has largely been seen as a commentator in WWE shows. He debuted as a commentator on the November 18, 2019 episode of Raw as the replacement for Dio Maddin, and remained on commentary for the whole show. Joe since returned as an active superstar, saving Kevin Owens from an attack by The Authors Of Pain and Seth Rollins, turning face for the first time since 2015. He participated in the Royal Rumble but was unsuccessful to win the match.
On February 20, 2020 it was revealed that he had suffered yet another injury, hurting his head during a commercial shoot. The next month he was suspended for breaking WWE’s wellness policy and in April returned as a commentator for the Raw brand, replacing Jerry “The King” Lawler in the process.
