Ann – HairToStay Subsidy Recipient

When my oncologist told me that chemo was recommended I immediately thought about loosing my hair. As vain as it sounds I couldn’t imagine it.

As a wife and mother of two, finding out I had breast cancer at 33 was the scariest thing I’ve ever had to deal with. When my oncologist told me that chemo was recommended I immediately thought about loosing my hair. As vain as it sounds I couldn’t imagine it. It’s hard enough to go through chemo and feel sick, then you have to lose your hair and a little bit of dignity as well. I googled “how to keep your hair during chemo” expecting no results.

I found Penguin Cold Caps and Rapunzel Project. I was amazed at what I was reading, women keeping their hair during chemo! I called Patsy and within 2 weeks I had my caps. I am amazed with the results! After 4 treatments of T/C I still have my hair! Going through cancer is hard enough, keeping my hair made it a little bit easier. Thank you Patsy and Penguin Cold Caps for making a difficult time in my life so much better! I will forever be grateful for all that you do!
