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.

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

As the spouse of a breast cancer woman survivor/thriver, I can assure you that it is extremely important to hear the concerns of woman facing the loss of hair. As a physician, it is critical to hear their voice. Rapunzel can help with the message!

Start education patients, doctors and researchers on the inherent value of listening to what is important to patients!

This is a fabulous project. I ultimately chose not to use the caps, and am now kicking myself. I completely plan to volunteer for them after I am done with my treatments. This is such a great cause. Your looks are so important to your recovery attitude, and this is a fabulous way to help all cancer patients go through chemo with more ease.

they have gotten another freezer donated to serve yet another group of cancer patients. Hoping to help them fund more soon.
