About Us

A Family-Led Foundation

Our 5 family members: Dr. Omesh, Shama, Natasha, Manisha and Akshay Verma created the foundation out of love in 2013 to help, inspire, empower and give hope to those who are suffering. Our most recent “Put a Cap On Cancer” project best exemplifies our mission to lift others.

In 2017, our co-founder Natasha Verma was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at 23. We came together as a family and turned our negative into a positive. Through our “Put A Cap On Cancer” program, we create custom high-quality cap wigs at no cost for women and children fighting cancer and dealing with the emotional side effect of hair loss.

In the first year of the program’s launch, we provided 416 cap wigs to cancer patients across the United States and partnered with 204 hospitals to provide this invaluable support. Today, we have given more than 800 cap wigs to patients around the world.
