Hair Preservation

Give the gift of more control to cancer patients
Hair loss is common with chemotherapy, but it doesn’t have to be inevitable. Now, there’s something you can do to help Maine cancer patients feel more like themselves and potentially reduce their stress and anxiety.
Scalp cooling therapy
A cooling cap worn during treatment at the cancer center circulates cold fluid around the scalp. The cap reduces blood flow to the scalp, which leads to less hair loss for many patients.

The campaign for more control during cancer treatment
A campaign is underway to bring technology to the Lafayette Family Cancer Institute to help patients keep more of their hair during treatment. The campaign will establish a fund to help patients who cannot afford the cost of a cooling cap, which is not covered by insurance.
All gifts reduce patients’ out of pocket costs. Click here to make your pledge.
