Sadly with chemotherapy comes hair loss. 

There is a new treatment to reduce hair loss through chemo but it's not covered by her medical.

http://penguincoldcaps.com is the company that supplies the treatment. Here are some other success stories:

We are fundraising to give Janine the ability to keep her hair through a very traumatic process. Maintaining her hair will give her the confidence to keep moving foward through this long, hard process. 

Janine is a fighter and will beat this. Let's come together and give Janine something that will empower to maintain a sense of normalcy.

Whatever remaining money will be donated to a cancer organization of Janine's choice. Let's fight cancer. 

An update on Janine's journey. On Monday a reporter, Thandi Fletcher from Metro News, got in touch with Janine to learn more about why Jay counldn't use the coldcaps and has written a lovely article that made it to the front page of Metro today. The article sheds some reason as to why Janine wanted to keep her hair and what this treatment could mean to other cancer patients. Here is the link:

Let's hope other people will be able to try the coldcaps to give enough evidence that they can be an effective treatment to hairloss through chemotherapy. 

Tonight Janine is getting her head shaved.
