Jan. 2010 - Help for Chemo-related Hair Loss is Here

Announcing the official launch of The Rapunzel Project and – a non-profit organization dedicated to helping chemotherapy patients keep their own hair during and after treatment.

Founded by breast cancer survivors, the organization raises funds to help hospitals facilitate cold cap therapy. Cold cap therapy is a revolutionary process that protects a patient's hair follicles during chemotherapy, enabling patients to preserve their own hair. For many, this allows them to look and feel better for the duration of treatment and beyond. Cold caps have been widely and successfully used overseas for years.

To those facing the unpleasant prospect of chemotherapy, The Rapunzel Project is a beacon of hope. To the organization's founders, Shirley and Nancy, it's deeply personal. In fact, Shirley used cold caps during her own recently completed chemotherapy, with tremendous success. And she wants to make sure others are able to do the same.

Hair loss has been determined to be one of the most traumatic side effects of chemotherapy treatment. Yet most American chemo patients and even their doctors are unaware of the existence and efficacy of cold cap therapy. It is this awareness gap, the successful use of cold caps in other countries, and Shirley’s own positive experience that have generated and validated the mission of The Rapunzel Project.
