17 Months Post Chemo
The first week of July 2015, I stood in your shoes with unexpected news - I had cancer. I was paralyzed with fear for days but slowly, with the help of family, friends and lots of prayers and the dream team of doctors, I found my fighting spirit. I hope if you are reading this you have found yours. If you haven't yet, keep trying. I promise it will come.
My journey with cold cap therapy started with a late night session on "Dr. Google" looking for any way I could save my hair. It was then I sent my family the first links about cold caps. I incessantly researched reading every word I could find - the good and the bad. I quickly made the decision I would use cold caps and subsequently which company I would use.
Cold caps are not for everyone. The choice is a very personal one. My goal is for everyone to have a choice. Your doctors' job is to save your life; they may not be concerned about your hair. If cold cap therapy interests you, talk to your doctor about it and make an informed decision. I was repeatedly told by some cold cap therapy would not work, I was wasting my money. Week after week for six months we proved everyone wrong. Results are not guaranteed, but I offer two things for you to think about: If you don't try you will never know and every day you have hair is a day you wouldn't have without cold cap therapy.
Warrior Caps is offering you a one stop rental package I hope will give you the best opportunity to look in the mirror each day and see the "you" looking back you saw every day before you found out your had cancer. American Cancer Society has a program "Look Good Feel Better," and I believe when you look good you feel good. I worked through six months of chemotherapy, 16 rounds total, in a male-dominated industry. While I love my career, I don't know if I would have been as comfortable or motivated to do so without my hair. Some embrace the Warrior who has no hair, and that is GREAT! It is their choice and for some the only choice they have. I like to believe I was a Warrior with hair.
