At Cancer Hair Care, we have a dedicated LGBTIQ+ Specialist Rainbow Service that is centred on supporting individuals to navigate their cancer-related hair loss journey.
All our team are trained to give a warm welcome to people from any minority group and we are here to offer you a safe place for the guidance and support you may need.
Hair loss related to cancer treatment can cause anxiety and concern for all types of people.
We understand that people across the LGBTIQ+ community may have specific questions as well as every day worries. For example, our experience in supporting people across the community shows us that the following might be of concern:
- Changes during cancer treatment to non-cancer related hormone treatments that may affect how hair grows or falls out (for example, facial hair).
- Changes in hair that may result in individuals feeling that their sexuality is questioned or exposed.
- Having been on a long journey with changing hair to define their image, people can feel overwhelmed to lose this hair.
If telling us that you are from the LGBTIQ+ community feels challenging, you can ask for a ‘Rainbow Service’ which results in one of our specifically trained team supporting your enquiry.
We are here to listen and help. Do please get in touch.
