Chemo Beanies is a family business founded out of love and necessity when two sisters were diagnosed with Breast Cancer. The negative experience one sister had trying to find head covers during treatment, translated into coming up with a solution to ease the burden for her older sister when she was diagnosed 5 years later. The immediate reaction from other patients who saw them inspired the family to launch Chemo Beanies, so that every women who is in the midst of this major health crisis, can stop worrying about the additional problem of covering their bald head. Searching for comfortable, stylish ways to deal with sudden, unwanted hair-loss leaves most women feeling frustrated and disappointed. After trying all the available head cover “solutions”, we knew exactly what was missing. We tried all of the cute hats that looked great in the catalogs, but never really functioned in our everyday lives. We tried the traditional “cancer turbans” that met the comfort criteria, but lacked the fashionable style we were yearning for. Then we utilized the traditional go-to option of the “bandanas and scarves” but they quickly proved difficult to tie and refused to stay in place. Lastly we tried wigs, which work well occasionally, but were not always the most comfortable for all situations. The bottom line was that we were frustrated by spending time and money on options that just never solved our problem. We believe that Chemo Beanies unique style and function are the one solution that simply takes the “Burden out of Baldness!”.
