Asking for a friend: Where in Northern California can I get a wig made out of my hair to give to a family member with cancer?

My friend wants to cut her (very long, healthy) hair and give it to someone who can create a wig out of it for one of my friend's family members that is dealing with cancer. She found a place in LA that would do it but her family member would have to come with her (for a fitting, I guess) and that person is currently too ill to travel, even a short plane ride. Both of us are both dumbfounded that there does not appear to be any type of similar business anywhere north of LA, even in San Francisco. My friend called Locks of Love and the American Cancer Society and they couldn't help (as far as directing her to this specific type of business). My friend will likely cut her hair anyway and donate it, but I know it would mean a lot to her if she could give it directly to her family member. Any ideas? Thanks.
