Access to DigniCap for Chemotherapy-Induced Hair Loss
The DigniCap® Scalp Cooling System can reduce hair loss during chemotherapy
for both male and female cancer patients with solid tumors, according
to the FDA. Patients wear a snug-fitting cap connected to a cooling unit
before, during and after chemotherapy. Cold fluid circulates through the
cap, constricting blood vessels in the scalp and reducing the amount of
chemotherapy that reaches hair follicles. Pomona Valley Hospital Medical
Center Foundation has created a fund to assist our patients who otherwise
might not have access to this technology.
