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

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!
