hair loss for women is common in women who are undergoing medical treatment such as chemotherapy and cobalt irradiation. My aunt, who is now in remission for cancer, experienced thinning of hair and complete hair loss during her treatment. Sadly, her daughter, my cousin Cez, is also undergoing chemotherapy treatment after she was diagnosed with early stage of breast cancer last February. I hope she will not lose her hair during the progression of her treatment. My aunt used to cover her head with a bandana. As for my cousin, I haven’t heard from her in a while. But from our last conversation, she said she has lost her appetite for food. She can only take soft food but even that is intolerable. I feel for my cousin. She got married barely a year ago and now this sad news.
