Fighting cancer her way - Jil Simon


Jil  Simon was happily married with two young children when she received the awful news that she had breast cancer. Determined to maintain as much normalcy as possible in her life and in her children's, Jil used a cold cap while she received chemotherapy.  Normally, the toxic chemicals in chemotherapy cause baldness, but cold caps prevent this traumatic side effect. 






Jill's website is www.tresssavers.com

The website for The Rapunzel Project - a volunteer group that raises money for hospitals to buy the special freezers needed to keep the cold caps at the correct temperature - is www.rapunzelproject.org.
