Cancer often presents our loved ones with their own questions and challenges. Your family and friends are welcomed and encouraged to be with you each step of the way.
"What a gift to my heart it was."
Consider meeting with Debby to discuss your plans for dealing with hair loss, as well as skin and nail changes. This may include getting your hair cut short to minimize the change when it begins to fall out. You may decide to try on a variety of wigs, choosing one at no cost, from our donated supply. Family and friends are encouraged to help you in this decision making process. This is a good time to ask questions and receive information and non-medical referrals.
Receive tips for skin and scalp care, including referrals for henna. Have your wig custom fit, shaped, washed and set while learning how to care for it. Debby will teach you how to accessorize with hats, scarves and head bands, and can also make recommendations for dealing with eyebrow and eyelash loss.
Debby can help ease the transition from wearing a wig back to your own hair style and provide additional services, resources and referrals. You can return your wig(s) when/if you’re ready and consider opportunities to get involved and “pay it forward”. Now that you are part of our family, visit often so we can join you in celebrating your recovery!
