Amazed By You is a Wig and Fashion boutique located at 113 W. Oak Street in Historic Downtown Wylie, Texas.
I, Gail Parker, am the owner of Amazed By You and a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed in March 2008 with Stage 2 Ductal Carcinoma. My treatment consisted of a Lumpectomy, 6 Chemotherapy treatments and 33 Radiation treatments.
Amazed By You opened March 18th, 2011 and derived its name from all the amazing and courageous people I met during and after my breast cancer diagnosis. I wanted a boutique where cancer patients and survivors felt safe and know I would be there for anything they may need.
I have a part time employee, Janice Harkins that is an 11 year breast cancer survivor. Both of us are very knowledgeable about the emotions and needs of cancer patients and survivors.
Amazed By You offers a large selection of fashionable wigs in different styles and colors. The boutique’s wig clientele is not limited to women going through cancer, and includes individuals with Alopecia and thinning hair, as well as women who just enjoy the fun and flexibility of wearing wigs.
In addition to the wide variety of wigs, Amazed By You offers a large selection of seasonal hats, kerchiefs, turbans and scarves. I am always searching for new products that the customer will feel comfortable and confident while wearing. Amazed By You also carries the following: mastectomy products, including stylish and comfortable bras, lightweight prosthesis, and post mastectomy bras and camisoles; compression sleeves and stockings for people diagnosed with Lymphedema and Varicose Veins; socks with a silver lining for diabetics; and compression socks and hose for people to wear while traveling. We also offer fashionable clothing, costume jewelry, purses and much more.
To further my goal as a resource for cancer patients and survivors, I began the Amazed By You Support Group. The group meets the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm at the boutique, it is a great way to meet other survivors and share your story, each month a different topic is discussed.
In January 2016, My 82 year old mother Lois was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ductal Carcinoma. She had a Lumpectomy and 33 Radiation treatments. My past experience with breast cancer was very helpful while taking care of her. She just had her check -up and there are no signs of cancer.
On April 11, 2016 , Wylie, Texas was hit with a horrific hail storm, 85% of Wylie had hail damage, we had softball size hail hitting at 110 to 120 mph. Amazed By You Boutique along with many others was destroyed by the hail. I had to move out for 6 months while the boutique was repaired. I moved back in on October 1st and am so happy to back.
We have been through a rough year but look forward to a new one in 2017.
I will always be here to help you with your recovery, listen to your story and share the information I gained while going through my cancer journey.
I feel God has placed me where I need to be.
