There are few side effects of chemotherapy as devastating as hair loss. For children and young people, it is even more heartbreaking since their feelings of self-worth are so heavily based on looking like everyone else. Having cancer is bad enough, but being robbed of dignity and self-esteem is even worse. Fortunately, there is something you can do make these children’s road to recovery a little less bumpy.
