Because of having my hair, I could choose whether (and with whom) I wanted to share about my diagnosis and treatment. In fact, most people never guessed what I was going through. This gave me a sense of control over my story when so many other things were simply out of my control. It also made family gatherings feel so much more relaxed and “normal” because I was not inadvertently broadcasting my illness. It was nice to be able to forget for a few moments.

Keeping my hair was extremely important to me! My hair has always been part of my identity and not going bald was very important to me to keep me strong mentally to push through my treatment. My family encouraged me through the process.

My scalp cooling experience was pleasant. Reading and understanding the cap placement was beneficial. I would estimate that I lost a total of 30-35% of my hair while using the DigniCap. In retrospect, I am certain I would have lost most, if not all of my hair had I not used the DigniCap. It has been 7 months since my last infusion. My hair is growing back and getting thicker every day.

By not losing all my hair while going through chemo, I felt like I didn’t have to announce to the world that I was sick. I believe that actually made me feel “less sick” during treatment.

I could look in the mirror and see me still – so emotionally it was so much easier to deal with everything else going on. At least I didn’t look sick and could keep my identity.

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 decided to try out DigniCap because I didn’t want to have any regrets – if I tried it out and kept my hair, great! If I tried and lost my hair, then at least I tried. If I didn’t try, I was going to lose my hair 100% and would’ve wondered about the what-ifs.

I was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer at the age of 38. I turned 39 by the time that I had my double mastectomy with reconstruction. My doctor discovered that I had the CHEK 2 Gene. After my surgery, my oncologist insisted that I undergo 4 rounds of chemotherapy of Taxotere and Cytoxan to prevent the cancer from returning. I told her that I was not going to undergo it unless I could keep my hair. She told me we could save at least 50% or more of my hair by using DigniCap.

Breast cancer runs in my family, both of my sisters have battled breast cancer, cousins, and my great grandmother. I had breast cancer in 2017 so this is my second battle. I believe I was able to accept it and move on much easier the second time around. I wanted to use DigniCap for a personal desire to maintain my dignity, who wants to lose their hair? Also, my work as a children’s teacher and adult trainer has me in the public eye every week. So that was another factor in my decision to use DigniCap.

The big question, to invest in cold capping that could potentially work, or to proudly go bald and let the world know you are a fighter. As I neared the final decision, cold capping felt like work plus stress and I was not sure I would like not being able to fix my hair. However, once I started it was not work at all. My thought was – doing this for a few months would be much better than going through 1-2 years of weird awkward phases of growing out my hair.

I would highly recommend DigniCap to those who want to keep their hair, especially if it will help while working. I really did not want to wear a wig and the nice ones are very expensive. If you have relatively good hair going into chemotherapy, definitely give it a try.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer March 2022 at 28 years old, and I wasn’t afraid to admit right away I was TERRIFIED about losing my hair. Thinking of losing all of my hair made me cry each time. I have an amazing husband & 3-year-old. My husband and I read up about DigniCap and I am SO GRATEFUL I was able to use DigniCap, it brings happy tears to my eyes.

I decided early on to try DigniCap because I did not want my 8-year-old daughter to see me going through treatments and losing my hair, I knew that would be so hard for her and me emotionally and physically. Thanks to DigniCap and the help of my husband and sweet nurses who helped me through the process of each treatment, I did not lose any of my hair.

DigniCap helped me so much mentally. I was able to look in the mirror and still see me during my chemo treatments. I was able to go out and be social and not have people view me as a cancer patient.

I dreaded the hair loss as much as the treatment itself. It is a constant reminder and an obvious/outward sign of the “C” diagnosis. My 88-year-old mother as well as many others were so relieved to see me “looking normal.”
