Shortly after the release of the film Decoding Annie Parker and the publication of  memoirs Annie Parker Decoded, Annie Parker felt the passionate need to create the Annie Parker Foundation  – an organization that supports and empowers cancer survivors and their families.

The Foundation is proud to be entering into a partnership with Paxman Cooling Cap Systems; a family run business who created a system to help patients keep their hair during chemotherapy treatment.  Annie Parker went through chemo treatment not once, but twice during 2 of her 3 cancer diagnoses. While she never lost her optimism or will to survive, she did lose her hair; a side effect that a lot of cancer patients fear the most.

The collaboration between the Annie Parker Foundation and Paxman is the perfect way to honour the Paxman family cancer journey while continuing the Annie Parker family history.

Paxman has been pioneering scalp cooling technology for more than 20 years. They are proud to be the leading global experts in scalp cooling. The Paxman Scalp Cooling System is globally recognized as the leading product for hair-loss prevention during chemotherapy treatment.

The NCCN Guidelines now recommend scalp cooling as a category 2A treatment option for patients with invasive breast cancer The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) has updated the Clinical Practice Guidelines in oncology for breast cancer (Version 1.2019) to include scalp cooling as a Category 2A recommendation to reduce the incidence of chemotherapy-induced alopecia for patients receiving chemotherapy.
