A friend of mine read about the Penguin Cold Caps in “O” magazine. I had been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer at the end of January, 2012, started Chemo Feb. 20th, and cut all my hair off on March 9th.
A friend of mine read about the Penguin Cold Caps in “O” magazine. I had been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer at the end of January, 2012, started Chemo Feb. 20th, and cut all my hair off on March 9th. I found out about the Cold Caps after that. My hair started falling out around March 4th. I started using the Cold Cap machine on Monday March 19th. I was not completely bald. I was very skeptical about the Cold Cap machine, as were both my doctors. I believe after that day on March 19th, I never lost another hair.
My pillow had been full of them every day. My last treatment was June 21st and I had to actually get a hair cut before that day, because some hairs were longer then others and it needed to be evened out, even curling up in the back. My doctor at MD Anderson said it was unheard of that I was not bald. Three weeks after chemo I look like I have a very fashionable very short hair style. There are many witnesses to what this machine can do. Even a nurse in my chemo infusion room asked for Patsy’s information.
Patsy and Geri have been so kind and patient. Always there for me, always flexible with any changes. Of course I wish I would have known about this machine before I lost my hair, but I am very very grateful to not just be starting now trying to grow my hair back, like I am my eyelashes and eyebrows, and every other hair on my body. Thank you to all of you involved with Penguin Cold Cap for helping me make one small part of this process easier. I hope in return I can somehow return the favor by speaking with anyone who might be interested in using this machine to let them know how great it worked for me.
