HairToStay Raises Funds to Prevent Hair Loss During Chemotherapy
« on: November 10, 2017, 05:17:20 pm »
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, HairToStay hosted a fundraiser at Charles Chocolates on Sunday, October 15. Though the event was dubbed “Chillin’ with Charles,” the rare warm San Francisco sun put the gourmet chocolates at risk of melting.

Bethany Hornthal founded HairToStay to provide subsidies for automated scalp cooling technology to prevent hair loss during cancer treatment. Automated systems like Dignitana’s DigniCap replace older cooling caps that must be kept in a freezer and switched out frequently during therapy. Paxman, Penguin Cold Caps and others also make automated scalp cooling systems.

Last year only around 30 medical centers in the United States offered automated scalp cooling and it was FDA-approved only for breast cancer, Hornthal said. Today scalp cooling is available at over 100 centers and it is approved for people with any type of solid tumor. However, it is still seldom covered by insurance.

Wow. Really wish I had known about this for relatives and friends that wanted to keep their hair. What a good resource. I see they are raising money for it? Is it expensive? Is there anyway to make it affordable?
