A cancer diagnosis involving you or a loved one can bring up so many different emotions. It can be numbing, it can cause great sorrow, and sometimes it will trigger great anger. Coping with cancer means that your life is going to change in so many different ways. One particularly difficult part of a cancer diagnosis has to do with hair loss as one of the side effects of medications used to fight the disease. RHRLI specializes in hair loss, and we know that cancer patients often lose their hair during treatment. We understand how difficult it is to deal with cancer and hair loss.

Healthy hair is removed from the sides and back the head and transferred to where they are needed, usually on the top or front of the scalp, particularly for those who suffer from male pattern hair loss. But there’s another type of hair transplant that’s becoming more and more popular that accepts donations below the scalp. This is a facial hair transplant, and they’re available at RHRLI.
