About Me

More and more young women are being diagnosed with breast cancer in the past several years - myself included. I was diagnosed eighteen months ago at the age of 37. I had no idea at the time how prevalent it was becoming, but that's a whole other blog!

When I was about to start my treatment I knew I would be losing my hair and I was prepared for that fact, so I began my shopping around for hair covers for chemotherapy hair loss. I found a couple of websites, but what I really found was that there were hardly any hip chemo head scarves or covers - everything seemed somewhat old-lady-like to me. In hindsight, I should have run with that and "invented" my own, but, well, I was too busy thinking about my precarious position and surviving it to see my two young daughters grow up.

It took a lot of searching and asking around because online searches didn't reveal many options, so I felt the need to compile my findings in one place for other cancer patients in my shoes so they could quickly and easily find what available chemotherapy head covers are out there!

Best wishes to you and yours through your battle and I hope you enjoy perusing what I've posted here.  If you want to read more about me and my cancer journey, click here.  I also have a published article with more hip chemo head scarves, hats and covers resources at HubPages.
