Ahead of Our Time
Living with permanent chemotherapy induced alopecia.
If you are worried that your hair isn't growing back and if you have received Taxotere/Docetaxel and need support, Ahead of Our Time. is a worldwide organisation of cancer patients who have banded together to share emotional support, compare medical research and educate our health care providers. If you are tired of the stares and the dismissive suggestions to “wear a wig”, you will find understanding and, indeed, empowerment among us. Permanent hair loss after chemotherapy for breast cancer is sadly being dismissed, downplayed or ignored by the medical world. We need it to be discussed at all the breast cancer seminars, conferences and included in all literature. Life after cancer matters. Quality of life matters. Patients' rights matter.
