“Being diagnosed with cancer was by far the scariest and most shocking time in my life. When I found out I needed chemotherapy, and a very strong regimen, I was sad at the thought of losing my long hair. I was lucky to have a friend who is a cancer survivor tell me about her experience with scalp cooling – and she encouraged me to try it.
Scalp cooling changed my life during and after treatment. I was able to continue working without others knowing what I was going through, which meant I could tell people when I was ready. DigniCap helped me keep my confidence, and when I looked in the mirror, I saw the me I recognized and not someone with cancer.
My husband and I had scheduled to renew our wedding vows just 9 months after I completed my 20-week chemotherapy regimen, and I was so happy to still have my long hair for the photos. I am so thankful for DigniCap and the people who share their stories of success with others.” – Melanie
