Wigs for Cancer Patients are starting to become more and more abundant now that the world is starting to take notice of the growing number of individuals whose lives are affected by cancer. Cancer Wigs are typically needed once the Cancer patient has to go through forms of radiation and chemotherapy.
Of course with chemotherapy being one of the more severe treatments out of the two. Chemotherapy takes a very harsh toll on the body, mind, and emotion of the patient. There are days during the treatment that you are not able to go to work, school, or even get out of bed.
Another unfortunate side effect of cancer treatments is the loss of hair. This might seem like a minor side effect compared to the others but for many women it is the worst part. We as women love our hair. Our hair is our symbol of femininity and style. We spend a lot of time do our hair and getting it just right for the day. When we are having a good hair day, it shows in our smile, energy, and spirit of the day. You walk a little taller, and sort of have a prance to your stride. However when cancer takes that away on top of all the other stuff, it can be a devastating blow.
So the human hair wigs for cancer patients’ movement is a strong one. Real hair wigs for cancer patients have given just a little something back to women who are fighting for their lives. These cancer patients wigs help improve mood and thus improves the immune system to help fight even harder. Studies have shown that women who have a great emotional support system and high self esteem tend to do better in fighting of cancer. It’s the hope theory that keeps their mind and body in survival mode.
Cancer Wigs also help the individual try to continue to live as close to “normal” as they can. So women are still able to go to work, school, and interacted with friends and family without the ever present issue of the “I have cancer” stigma haunting their steps. Wigs give a sense of empowerment and a statement that says, “Yes I have cancer, but it’s not going to beat me”.
I personally had to go through this issue myself. I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 26. I could not believe it! I was so shocked and scared. I went through radiation treatment, and although it was not an aggressive cancer it still took two months of treatments to give rid of. I lost the hair in the back of my head and on the right side in front of my ear and a little above it. So I wore human hair wigs until my hair grew back.
I received radiation treatments on my neck, right under my right ear. The area turned very dark and it was a very big different in my skin color there. On top of that, I had a huge scar from when I had surgery to remove the tumor. Nevertheless, I’m grateful for my wigs. I was able to hide my hair loss as well as the area that was very much so changed by the radiation and surgery. I wore my wigs until I was ready to declare to the world, “Yes I had surgery, cancer, and radiation, But now I’m cancer free!
