Free Wig Program

A free wig is available to women undergoing cancer treatment. Call 909.865.9907 to schedule an appointment.

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.
