JOE MINNITI, a master hair replacement specialist, is using his talents to help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and other drug treatments. It all began in 1971 when a sister developed cancer. She was successfully treated, but her illness inspired Minniti to help others like her through the Cancer Foundation for Personal Appearances, Inc., a non-profit organization he founded in 1999 in New Jersey. To date it has donated more than 450 wigs and hair pieces to the ill and needy; conducts workshops to counsel cancer patients on personal appearance and self-esteem; and is affiliated with several major hospitals.
