One’s story and what it might say

I was told that insurance does not cover it, but have not checked with them directly. I was told they are about $2,500, which seems to be an extremely high expense if it may or may not help. I did search under hair loss and saw that someone mentioned going to the inspire.com website for cryotherapy and they mentioned that you can purchase or rent them. Not sure.

Ouch, when already facing financial toxicity from cancer, that just hurts. I can’t really find much information on if the work, but here is this tidbit.

@jdh65 I’m just going to jump in here for a minute. Have you checked with the infusion center, that will do the chemo, if they have the cryotherapy caps? The infusion center where i was last year seemed to have several. But it made me cold just watching the women-they were totally covered in blankets, hats, mittens!
Give the center a call and find out.
