ONCOHAIRCARE is an initiative for cancer patients with their special needs. With information, actions and intensive networking, we support the empowerment of patients for competent co-responsibility. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, over 500,000 people are diagnosed with cancer every year. Many of them have to undergo chemotherapy. Hair loss is one of the most feared side effects. In order to do something good for these people, Karin El Benna, certified hair growth specialist and Oncohaircare specialist, invited to the solidarity action "Crochet caps for chemo patients" in the restaurant Krone Unterstammheim on January 17, 2017. 40 women from the women's association Unterstammheim and the countrywomen's association Oberstammheim accepted the invitation to this solidarity action of Karin El Benna and crocheted an impressive 210 caps. The caps are given to people suffering from cancer through oncology practices and hospitals in the region.
