Francesca's Freeze Cap Fund

As some of you may know, our beloved Cesca has been diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  In true Cesca spirit, she is facing this challenge with humor, courage, and grace. She always puts her "kids"; the cast, crew and Madhatters family, first.  One of her concerns in facing chemo is hair loss, and how it might cause anxiety and stress for her casts, particularly the younger children.  She mentioned to me that there is a freeze cap that helps to mitigate the effect of chemo on hair loss.  This cap is not covered by her insurance, and is unfortunately not something that she can easily afford right now.  I am putting together this page in hopes that we can, in a small way, give back to a woman who continues to give so much of herself to all of our children.  My hope is that this money can be raised quickly, and she will be able to acquire this cap before her first round of chemo, which she anticipates to be in the next few weeks.  Please feel free to pass this request along to friends, family and Madhatters past, present, and future.  Thank you for your generous support.
