Navigating hair loss as a result of cancer treatment
Thursday 19 August 11-12.30pm AEST
We warmly invite you to join us for our upcoming PanSupport Online Patient & Carer Support Group – August
Nicole DeMatos, Founder of Real Fringe Hair Bands and an experienced Oncology nurse since 2000, envisioned a truly unique hairpiece design after supporting hundreds of patients through their cancer treatment and witnessed their personal struggles with side effects. The creation of the hair bands has helped people living with cancer to experience a renewed sense of normalcy, empowering them to be their most authentic self.
In this session, Nicole will discuss:
- Why people lose their hair during treatment
- How we can maintain our hair throughout treatment
- How Real Fringe Hair Bands are created
- How Real Finge Hair Bands are making a difference
There will also be time available for questions after the presentation.
