Cold caps have been used in Europe for decades, though they are relatively new to the USA and Cayman, we are proud to say that Cayman we have led the field here (and in the USA) in bringing cold caps to this part of the world, cold caps enable a cancer patient who is undergoing chemotherapy to keep a good amount of hair, it is not an easy process, the BCF have purchased manual cold caps for all three hospitals in Cayman and two electronic machines for H.S.A., this is a free service and if you wish to know more details about what is involved in using these caps and what measures you as the patient have to take, then please contact us for full information. You can click on the link here to read the guidelines given to patients who want to try these caps.
If you are going through chemotherapy and are choosing not to use the cold caps, you will probably lose your hair, the Breast Cancer Foundation keeps wigs in stock at their Grand Harbour office, please browse through our selection and then contact the office to make an appointment to come in for a fitting. Alternatively, if you wish to have a fitting in the privacy of your home, then please contact us with your selection of wigs you feel would suit you, we can then have our professional hairstylist come to your house to fit the wig, and if necessary, trim and style it to suit you. This is a free service to anyone signed up to our Breast Cancer Wellness Program and is for persons going through or recovering from chemotherapy only.
