Chemo Beanies – slip-on head covers that make life better for women with cancer

About the solution

Chemo Beanies are slip-on head covers offered as a more stylish, easier-to-wear alternative to other caps and scarves for women undergoing cancer treatment.

Angelle, a 46-year-old mother of three, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. Her doctor gave her a 34-percent chance of survival. She prepped for chemotherapy, and amid all of the emotions, she had the sinking realization she would lose her big, curly brown hair. She searched for a solution. Wigs made her feel unfamiliar to herself. The hats were made from unattractive fabric and didn't cover up all her baldness, anyway. Pricey scarves were cumbersome to tie and keep in place.

So she ended up wearing one black scarf through her treatment. In the end, despite the odds, she did recover. She said she wanted to forget about cancer, move on with life. But five years later, in 2010, the disease made another appearance. Her older sister, Danielle Fournier, was also diagnosed with breast cancer. Angelle knew what was ahead for her sister, and though she brainstormed ways to help. She thought of a cap using attractive fabrics with elastic material to keep it in place and an extra flap in the back to cover a woman's neck.

The Chemo Beanies have a fit with the perfect amount of feminine flare. The unique bunching and neck ruffle in the back provide volume and full coverage to the bare neck, while remaining highly fashionable and easy to slip on. They have chosen only the softest materials with the perfect amount of stretch to naturally adjust for a secure fit on any size head.
