In brief: Chemo and hair loss

Please go on-line to www.
mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/chemotherapy/in-depth/hair=loss/art-20046920 If you cannot access this from home go to your local library and they will help. You should get some important understanding from this and you may need to get a air piece. Not pleasant but important as hopefully your cancer is coming under control. Best wishes - you deserve it!
