Hope for Hair Foundation provides support to cancer patients at risk for hair loss as a result of chemotherapy in two ways: Financial aid for DigniCap (or other cooling cap methods) and by educating and providing products that will help ensure successful hair retention.
Heather was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2016. She felt that keeping her hair would be very important to her mental state and thus affecting the outcome of her treatment. Heather was able to use the DigniCap (https://dignicap.com/) which was cleared by the FDA in 2015, although most insurances currently don't cover the cost. She kept about 90% of her hair, inspiring her to create this foundation to help those who otherwise couldn't afford the cost of the cooling cap technology.
