I shaved mine off on the 4th May, started chemo on the 8th May. I didnt shave it bald, just on a very short grade to get used to the idea. I opened a Just Giving page online for Breast Cancer Care and plugged it constantly though my Facebook page for about 4 weeks beforehand. I have managed to raise £926 so far and still going after the event!! I have very fine hair also so decided to take the bald approach rather than the cold cap. Good luck with everything, Lou xx
you can wair cold cap . you will lose hair but you will keep some . Like 40-50% of hair you will keep . I had 4 chemo FEC . i still have 50% bc i wair cold cal also it keep your scalp healthy .
Take care and good luck x
Hi barbara, I have had FEC-T which includes the hair loss one. Mine started falling out day 13 after round 1. Most ladies seem to be around 2 weeks or so. I hope that helps and good luck with your fundraising.,
