The Top 5 Types of Headwear for Cancer Patients

Cancer is one of the most challenging and stressful experiences of a lifetime. What makes the diagnosis even more difficult are the side effects of the chemotherapy. While devastating to many aspects of a person’s mental and physical health, it is a necessary treatment for the survival of the cancer patient.

Chemotherapy can be especially difficult because one of the main side effects of chemotherapy is hair loss. As much as our friends and family members try to lift our spirits once our hair begins to fall out, it is difficult to maintain high spirits and healthy self-esteem levels when our hair thins and falls out.
