Thanks to donors, special therapies can be offered to patients at low or no cost, like cold caps that help prevent hair loss during chemotherapy. Cancer research and clinical trials help develop more effective treatments and procedures, and work toward finding a cure for many types of cancer. And resources like community education, screening programs, transportation and prescription assistance can be provided to patients in need.

Cold Cap Therapy
Hair loss during cancer treatment can be traumatizing for patients. Revolutionary Cold Caps help significantly reduce the hair loss that is caused by chemotherapy. When a Cold Cap device is worn, it cools the scalp to constrict blood vessels, meaning less chemo medication reaches the hair follicles. The ability to retain some or most of their hair during treatment is monumental for cancer patients' mental health and confidence.
Currently, Bon Secours has enough Paxman Scalp Cooling therapy machines, also known as Cold Caps, across Richmond area hospitals for up to 15 patients at once. With your help, more Cold Cap devices can be purchased to accommodate more eligible patients during chemotherapy treatments.
