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?
For me, keeping my hair wasn’t an ego thing–I just wanted my friends and family to treat me “normally” while I was going through devastating cancer treatment.
Keeping my hair provided me with a sense of normalcy and one less thing to worry about during a a time that challenges people physically, mentally, and emotionally.
DigniCap gave me the freedom to choose when to tell people about my diagnosis, to still feel like myself when I looked in the mirror, and to HAVE HAIR AT MY WEDDING!!
If you are reading this and you want the chance to keep your hair while going through this challenging time DigniCap is there for you.
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 was inspired to create my Instagram account, @canceratthirty, to share my journey with the online community, and to speak about my success with the DigniCap and everything it’s done for me.
I’m blessed to have been given a chance to keep my dignity and regain some control with The DigniCap Scalp Cooling System.
When people found out I was undergoing treatment for cancer they would marvel how I still had my hair.
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.
When I looked in the mirror, I was not constantly reminded about cancer! I saw me, so I felt like me.
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!
I have been a hairdresser for 25 years. Hair is my passion – and my hair is my identity.
When cancer patients lose their hair it dramatically affects the way people treat them.
DigniCap helps you feel normal.
When you are diagnosed with breast cancer, you quickly become aware that change is coming and, in many ways, you are no longer in control.
If there was a way for me to save my hair during chemo, I was determined to find it.
I didn’t want a lot of people to know.
With the use of DigniCap, I was able to keep all of my hair and could choose to stay more private about my battle with cancer.
Accepting the fact that I was going to lose my hair was very difficult because I felt as if I would be losing part of my identity. With the DigniCap, it allowed me to have control over something in a process where I really had no control.
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.
It was a powerful experience to look healthy throughout chemotherapy and be treated as a healthy person by others.
Some people seem to think that the hair loss of cancer treatment is trivial, that it’s just something to be got through, that it’s not important… The desire to keep your hair during chemo is not about vanity.
Keeping my hair gave me hope.
