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.

Cancer takes so much away from us–time, health, energy, plans, simple pleasures, appetites–I’m glad that hair doesn’t have to be another thing.
Thanks to DigniCap, my hair has grown back faster than normal, which I was told could happen… I’m so glad that I went the direction that I did and choose to try using DigniCap!
I wanted to fight hard to beat breast cancer, but I also wanted to fight hard to not look ill. I am the type of person who prefers privacy without having others recognize that I was undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
Being able to keep my hair through DigniCap made me feel more like myself at a time when I could not have appreciated it more.
While I didn’t always feel like myself, I looked more like myself to everyone around me, especially my kids, which made the whole process a fulfilling one! I’m so grateful that DigniCap was a part of my cancer experience!
My white hair is my trademark and makes me very recognizable by friends and others. So, for me keeping my hair was very important.
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.
