Reviews for The Rapunzel Project

Rating: 5 stars  

My best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer (for the 2nd time) in March, she was having a very hard time seeing the positive in any of these ordeal, until she met with an amazing oncologist at the University of Colorado who introduced her to Penguin Cold Caps. She lives in a very rural and remote area and within a week she had found out about the amazing group of people at The Rapunzel Project, they not only were able to donate a freezer to her small hospital but she will now be able to donate this freezer to future chemo patients who want to use this amazing system. I could not think of a better group I would recommend, if I could find a way to volunteer my time and knowledge of the caps to people in my area I will jump at the chance. GREAT ORGANIZATION!!!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

GIVE MORE MONEY TO KEEP THEM DOING THIS AMAZING WORK!!

Would you volunteer for this group again?

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 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.
