Services Available & Pricing

Family members and friends of cancer patients want to focus on the importance of reducing stress and mobilizing resources in the midst of crisis. Asking a family member or friend to help with Cold Cap Therapy is often doable, but not always practical. Hiring a professional to help take the stress out of a frightening environment and process, and turning it into a comforting and relaxed atmosphere, is priceless. Hiring a professional is not just about buying a service, but guarantees a dedicated, committed person to help one through the technicalities of the Cold Cap Therapy process. There are no second chances when it comes to losing hair. Cold Cap Therapy needs to be done right and efficiently. Staff members with Cold Cap Therapy Midwest work as a liaison with medical staff from the oncology clinic and families to make the Cold Cap Therapy process go smoothly so that the investment into Cold Cap Therapy is successful. At Cold Cap Therapy Midwest, our main goal is to provide caring support to those who choose to keep their hair during chemotherapy.
