The Rapunzel Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping chemotherapy patients keep their hair during treatment. Mission: Funds raised by The Rapunzel Project will be used for two related purposes: first, to create awareness that hair loss during chemotherapy can be prevented through the use of specialized cold caps, and second, to purchase specialized freezers, cold caps and related equipment to facilitate this process.

This non-profit is run by highly qualified professionals and offers a great option for cancer patients. Keeping our hair directly affects our sense of dignity and self esteem. Cold caps should be available to all who want them.

The Rapunzel Project is a great non-profit effort and shining example of how a difficult life challenge which is shared by many (the emotional/physical strain of battling cancer) can be turned into something beautiful. A phenomenal organization has blossomed from the determination of a few individuals not to allow an illness to dictate how they look and feel. Ask anyone in those shoes how important it is to feel good about yourself, at the time when your body is at its weakest... then you will know the importance of The Rapunzel Project. To all involved and all who benefit... keep it going. Great job.

As a friend to a patient who had twice gone through chemo, her attitude and dignity was much better when she went through chemo the second time when she used the cold cap service. She felt "normal" during her chemo treatment period because when she left the hospital she still had her hair. She was not questioned about her illness from strangers as she attended her kids' public events and just did everyday activities. Her dignity was intact.

Having cancer takes away so much control from the individual. It seems that the path of your life is determined by medical professionals and the medicine they prescribe. How wonderful it is to take back the control over whether or not you lose your hair at a time when so much strength, courage and effort is required. I was delighted to see it work for the mother of a friend at work as she conquered her battle with cancer. I hope it becomes de rigueur at every hospital that treats cancer.

I have seen this organization's success stories on tv news, newspaper articles and watched my friend's mother successfully battle cancer all while maintaining her beautiful blond hair.

I am an entertainment industry professional living in NYC. As a passion, I work with various non-profit organizations including the prestigious Byrd Hoffman Watermill Foundation. I am currently also working closely with the Open Space Alliance of North Brooklyn to form a community outreach for the youth in my neighborhood. In the past i have worked with many other non-profit organizations. On a personal note I have lost 2 very close loved ones to breast cancer and am also acquainted with many survivors. I am thrilled by the work Shirley and Nancy are doing with the Rapunzel Project. I can think of a more suitable non-profit organization deserving of the GREAT label!! Be well! Marc Scrivo

This is an amazing non-profit organization. It gives women the confidence and keeps their spirits high while they are going through the chemotherapy. The ability to keep your hair during this process, give women the hope and courage to stay positive, which is extremely important when faced with such an awful disease.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 years ago, I researched every treatment, every option and chose the set of treatments that best fit my situation. It is wonderful to learn that developments and treatment breakthroughs are STILL happening. I can only imagine the empowerment felt by those who have successfully used the caps, kept their hair and triumphed at a time when their life is so challenged. I applaud the Rapunzel Project and look forward to watching their work flourish in the future.

Seeing first hand the fear and frustration many women face fighting cancer, I'm thrilled to see the Rapunzel project which helps women keep their hair and their dignity, is gaining momentum. Cancer is a vicious contender; these women need all their strength and composure to fight it. Thank you to those working so hard to build Repunzle Project, it will help so many.

The Great!

discussions with the organizers and hearing first hand the experience from someone who had great success with the caps.
