I am told I will lose my hair during chemo. Can I shave it now and make a wig?

In brief: ITS POSSIBLE

Everyone is different, some shave now, others wait until they notice hair loss and others until they notice bald spots.
The timing is a personal matter. About making a wig, its possible but very time consuming, better option is to purchase a wig of your style and color of choice made of natural human hair.
