One of my best friends began chemo today. Four to six months of that, and then one to I-forgot-what-her-husband-said months of radiation.
She’s, of course, joining my late 80s mother on my dern-sure-to-check-in-on-often list.
Well, the hair loss is a given. And I want to give her a hat. What I’m thinking of is a sort of a white cotton, what(?), sun bonnet. See, I don’t even know what you call these things, much less where in the heck you go to get one.
So help me out here, Dopers. What’s the most useful sort of headgear for a chemo-baldie? What do you call it and, where do you get one?
And a question for the cancer vet Dopers, hmmm…, well, no, I guess anybody can offer their thoughts; what is the propriety of my giving her such? She really is close. Her husband is one of my eight or ten best friends going back 38 years, and she’s another one of those eight or ten whom I’ve known for about 20 years.
