The Cold Cap Program prevents hair loss for men and women during chemotherapy. Foundation4Love financially assists patients at New England Cancer Specialists who are eligible for Cold Capping.
How It Works? It works by reducing the temperature of the scalp by a few degrees immediately before, during, and after the administration of chemotherapy. This in turn reduces the blood flow to hair follicles, which may prevent or minimize hair loss.
“Thank you for helping me save my hair. As you know, it’s not done for vanity, but dignity. The ability to go to work or to to dinner without people watching you wondering what kind of cancer you have is a gift. Being able to shield my granddaughter from the full extent of my illness is a blessing. Thank you again for giving women like me a bit of hope, dignity and love.”
– Denise C.
