CAPS For The CURE Fundraising Event

6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 16
The Exchange at Dublin Bridge Park

In 2011, Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery launched the CAPS for the CURE fundraising event benefiting breast cancer supporting organizations and to further engage the Central Ohio community in this fight. We have been humbled by the great success of this event, which has driven the development of The CAPS FOUNDATION in 2018. The CAPS Foundation works to provide support and assistance to those in our community whose lives are affected by these statistics and more, as a 501©(3) non-profit organization. Our goal in forming The CAPS Foundation was to continue to expand our mission in raising funds as well as awareness for breast cancer research. Through these funds, we are able to offer assistance, comfort and relief to those affected by breast cancer.

in their lifetime.

It is estimated that over 40,000 people will lose their battle with breast cancer in the U.S. this year alone. Since we founded Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery (CAPS) over 20 years ago, we have remained passionate about the care that we provide to our Central Ohio patients affected by breast cancer. In addition to breast reconstruction services, through the CAPS Foundation, we support local organizations that strive to eradicate breast cancer and fund breakthrough innovations like Cold Caps Therapy. Funds also may go towards advanced tattooing treatments.

One of the most common and most distressing side effects of chemotherapy is hair loss. Cold Caps Therapy combats hair loss through advanced technology that uses a special set of caps, cooled to a very low temperature and worn on the patient’s head before, during, and after each chemotherapy treatment. The cold temperatures constrict the scalp’s blood vessels, which help prevent chemotherapy drugs from reaching the hair follicles. This treatment prevents or reduces hair loss, so patients feel more like themselves and retain their confidence.

The CAPS Foundation is proud to have been a significant program funder of this life-changing program.
