High Hopes Salon

People in cancer treatment can experience unsettling hair loss and changes to their skin. Many patients find great comfort in speaking with Lisa Kellnhauser of ThedaCare’s High Hopes Salon about these changes in their appearance. Lisa, a licensed cosmetologist, has specialized skills and experience in working with people in cancer treatment. When you make an appointment at High Hopes Salon inside the ThedaCare Regional Cancer Center, you will discover:

  • No-fee or low-cost salon services to help lift your spirits without added financial burden
  • A private salon setting staffed by a licensed cosmetologist who will offer advice and services about wig fitting and styling, head shaving, headwear options, and skin care
  • A certified mastectomy fitter and private fitting room for mastectomy bras, swimwear, and post-surgical bras and camisoles
  • Dignicap Cold Cap Therapy, a scalp cooling system that is effective in reducing chemotherapy-induced hair loss
  • Compassionate advice, privacy, access to the Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful support group for women’s skin care

The High Hopes Salon was made possible by a gift from the Patricia Ann High Cancer Fund, a designated fund of the ThedaCare Family of Foundations. Dean High knew his wife Patricia, who battled cancer for 11 months before her death, would’ve loved to support a salon for cancer patients. “It’s important for patients to feel good about themselves and to speak with people who understand their experience,” he said.
