JavaJana, if no one here is snapping this item up for themselves, I know my daughter-in-law would use this daily. Not only does she suffer from migraines, she has psoriasis on her scalp that drives her nuts with the itching and burning I know the application of ice would help with that. Again--someone here, especially someone with BC, has first dibs. PM me if you're interested. I would insist on paying the shipping costs. Thanks! SB

Carlsoda, cold capping for hair preservation during chemo is a complex process--more than just a single icepack from the freezer. There are several cold-capping "systems" that are used. Here's a good article that discusses them.
