On May 17 I found out I would lose my hair to breast cancer chemotherapy. I was devastated. Luckily, I discovered scalp cooling as a possible solution. Using cold caps, I was able to keep my hair and ultimately my privacy during the hardest challenge of my life.
The enormous expense of cold caps makes them unavailable for many women. HairToStay grants money to individuals to help offset the cost. HairToStay is also working to get cold caps FDA approved and available in all chemo treatment facilities.
For me, recognizing myself in the mirror every day and continuing to enjoy my life without the constant reminder of my illness was a precious gift. I hope you'll join me in supporting a cause that directly improves the lives of women undergoing cancer treatment. My fundraising goal of $2400 covers the cost of cold cap rental for someone going through my same chemo treatment.
