Hair Preservation

Give the gift of more control to cancer patients
 
Hair loss is common with chemotherapy, and it can affect a patient’s privacy and attitude toward treatment. Some patients may even decline treatment because they’re concerned about losing their hair. Now, there’s something you can do to help cancer patients maintain their privacy and reduce their stress and anxiety about treatment.
 
Scalp cooling therapy
 
A cooling cap worn during treatment at the cancer center circulates cold fluid around the scalp. The cap reduces blood flow to the scalp, which leads to less hair loss for many patients.

The campaign for more control during cancer treatment
 
A community-led campaign is underway to bring technology to the Lafayette Family Cancer Institute to help patients maintain more control over their privacy while being treated for cancer. The campaign goal of $250,000 will cover the equipment costs and establish a fund to help patients who cannot afford the cost of a cooling cap. The cooling caps are not covered by insurance.
