Knowing you are not alone in your fight with cancer can be a great source of strength. You may find it liberating to document your journey, and your story may also help inspire others as they face their toughest challenge. Below are just a few of the stories that patients have shared about their journey with DigniCap.
Want to share your DigniCap story?
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.
I did all the steps and did DigniCap and I completed 12 weeks of Taxol – and guess what my Pink Sisters, I kept 99% of my hair!!!! Thanks to DigniCap!!!!!!!
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.”
By saving my hair I was able to go to work as a Health & Physical Education teacher and do my job without my students knowing what I was going through. I was able to look at myself in the mirror and not look sick, that was the best part of saving my hair.
DigniCap allowed me to keep my struggle private, which in turn helped me to maintain my self-esteem and gave me a sense of well being.
I did it because so much had already been stripped away and I wanted control over one thing.
I thought if I could keep this one thing, it would be encouragement for me as I moved forward with my treatment .
It is well worth a try to maintain some normalcy in your life during this difficult cancer process! Take it from one who’s lost all her hair previously during chemo, DigniCap is a wonderful option!
It helped me have the confidence to not feel so insecure and depressed, giving me the positivity and strength to push through this second time around. I am forever grateful for DigniCap.
After 10 weeks, I have not lost a single hair on my head. I still have all the hats I bought sitting in their original packets. Besides the usual, normal shedding in the shower, nothing…I waited for clumps, I waited for heavy shedding. So far nothing. This was with Taxol/Carboplatin.

“I decided that keeping my hair was really important to me. I didn’t know how I was going to feel going through chemotherapy, and if I felt good, I wanted to look myself and feel myself. I knew that I was on a very long journey and I wanted to feel good for as long as I could.”
Every morning my husband greeted me with “Good morning….you still have all your hair.” I literally ran my hands through it each morning to make sure. My last day of chemotherapy is this coming Tuesday. I’ll miss all the time it gives one to relax. I’ll also miss the staff with their kindness and empathy, but thanks to DigniCap I will not miss my hair!!!
Keeping most of my hair was great because it wasn’t a constant reminder to myself that I was sick. Thanks, Dignitana for this wonderful option.
Cancer is shocking, things like keeping your hair may seem small when faced with the treatment ahead of you, but I soon realized that it matters, you need to feel normal! I also kept working full time thru my whole treatment, so hair on my head seemed like a good thing to have.
DigniCap helped me emotionally through treatment and it helped my children to not see the harsh side effects of chemotherapy. I finished my final chemotherapy treatment in November and I still have my hair.
For me, hair is my favorite thing about my appearance and I knew if I lost that, I would be depressed for this entire period. With preserving my hair, I was able to go to work and most people don’t know what I am going through, and that’s how I wanted it to stay.
I was the first person at Saint Joseph Cancer Center to use the Delta system. I followed all the instructions and had absolutely no hair loss whatsoever!
Gunes | Istanbul, Turkey Diagnosis: Breast Cancer Chemotherapy Regimen: TCHP Total Treatments: 6 This is Gunes. I live in Istanbul, Turkey. DigniCap is my hero and this is definitely a success story. First I would like to thank to DigniCap Turkey team. When I heard...
When you get diagnosed with cancer, there is very little you can control. I couldn’t control my physical feelings or my emotional feelings during treatment, I couldn’t control my long commutes to undergo the treatment, or having to take a leave from work, but being able to keep my hair, and look in the mirror, gave me some control over a really scary situation.
Keeping most of my hair was great because it wasn’t a constant reminder to myself that I was sick. Thanks Dignitana for this wonderful option.
No one wants to be sick or look sick, and thanks to DigniCap I didn’t have to.
For anyone who’s going through cancer and getting DigniCap you won’t go wrong. With everything I’ve been through, I still feel like the beautiful woman I was before I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Some doctors/studies say that losing your hair is harder than the actual diagnosis itself. It’s true. I was able to still feel like myself, get up on stage and confidently perform in a sketch comedy show at week 12 on chemo. I just finished 20 rounds of chemo (5 months)! I’m so thankful to still have a near-perfect full head of hair.
I lost around 10 percent of my hair during the three-month period, never developed any bald spots and my hair looked good throughout treatment. This was a boost to my self-esteem and helped me feel “normal” in a situation that was anything but that.
Cancer sucks and it takes so much away from us but one thing we can keep and maintain is our hair, thanks to DigniCap and their amazing people. Thank you for being there for me when I needed the most. Thank you for this amazing technology and making it available to us.
