A number of times we wrote about the use of the Cold Cap for people who have cancer and did not want to lose their hair during chemotherapy. The stories I followed included a relative of mine who was able to hold on to 80% of her hair under chemotherapy for breast cancer. Another patient held on to his hair with chemotherapy for lung cancer. The value of this technology is absolutely clear and now the FDA has formally cleared the technology for clinical use. It was interesting to hear the stories from some of the patients I followed. Their doctors were somewhat resistant to this technology but because the patients insisted on it, they allow its use in their Chemotherapy Centers. Keeping ones hair during chemotherapy gives dignity to many such patients and helps reduce the stigma associated with these horrible diseases.
