The Rapunzel Project

A nonprofit organization

The Rapunzel Project is a nonprofit with the mission of creating awareness of the existence and efficacy of cold cap/scalp cooling therapy. 

Chemo induced alopecia (CIA) or hair loss, is the single most dreaded side effect of chemotherapy today. Yet there is technology with which most patients can save most of their hair. The Rapunzel Project was created in 2009, when Shirley and Nancy, the cofounders, realized how effective this technology can be, and how few people in the US even knew it existed. We have spent the last decade plus sharing this information with patients, medical personnel, and the media. We know the scalp cooling process is not for everyone, but patients can’t make a choice when they don’t know there is a choice to be made.
