Together, we can help chemotherapy patients keep their hair

Keeping one's hair while undergoing chemotherapy can help liberate a patient emotionally and physically from the "cancer patient" label and improve self-image, dignity and morale – vital, yet often overlooked, elements of overall wellness.

You can help support the cause, too. By joining the effort, spreading the word or donating to The Rapunzel Project, you'll be a part of helping chemotherapy patients look and feel better.

 

How we did it:

  • After we learned about cold caps and Shirley's doctor approved their use, we realized we needed a biomedical freezer to make the process manageable
  • We emailed the story to friends and affiliated groups, raising over $7,000
  • Our local hospital agreed to collect donations for us through their foundation, making all donations tax deductible
  • The hospital and doctors involved determined an appropriate location for the freezer
  • The hospital then purchased the freezer, using the funds we raised

 

What our goals are now:

  • We hope to raise awareness of the existence and efficacy of cold caps
  • We will be using our resources, as available, to purchase additional biomedical freezers and further support cold cap use

We need YOUR help

Spread the word about cold caps and www.rapunzelproject.org:

  • Tell your friends and family
  • Like us on Facebook! Help us go viral!!
  • Tell doctors about cold caps, especially people connected with cancer care
  • Tell your hair stylist, as salons often are aware when a client needs to buy a wig – anticipating chemotherapy

 

Start a grassroots effort to help your local hospital buy a freezer:

  • Fundraise among friends
  • Seek support from church and synagogue organizations
  • Ask other local groups for donations
  • Contact cancer groups for ideas and support
