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.

The reason I chose to use DigniCap is that I was going to work through 12 rounds of weekly chemo and did not want people to look or treat me differently. It was one thing I did not want cancer to take away from me.

The choice to use scalp cooling during my chemotherapy provided me with the freedom to continue to enjoy my friends no matter where we went. I was able to go on two trips and attend multiple birthday celebrations during my year of treatment, thanks to Dignitana. I maintained privacy and dignity throughout my treatment which also allowed me to continue to work.

Keeping my hair has allowed me to choose who I wish to share my cancer journey with. I am doing great with my chemotherapy and have minimal side effects, but if I want to or feel I need to share my condition, I can choose the situation.

I could go through chemo and nobody would know unless I told them. I would be able to maintain normalcy in my home with two very young children. I could look in the mirror and still recognize myself as I battled cancer.

With all the powerful and toxic drugs that have to be put into our bodies to help us survive, it’s hard to feel like you have a choice when battling cancer. DigniCap allows us to make at least one decision for ourselves. Thank you, DigniCap!

Not having that reminder every time you look in the mirror that you are sick, and you look normal to your friends and family, made the chemo much more bearable. Instead of illness, I saw myself.
