Beautiful Hand Sewn Head Scarves for Cancer Patients

There is not much else in life that tests a woman's strength as finding out that she has cancer. Chemotherapy will make her sick and rob her of her appearance, at least the one she has always recognized in the mirror.

Breast Cancer is common, more common than one would think. Millions of women are taking advantage of early screening with mammograms and doing monthly breast exams. We are more aware than ever that we should be vigilant about these things to preserve our health. Luckily, this has allowed many women to discover the problem and for their doctors to diagnose it early. More women than ever survive a bout with cancer and go on to thrive.

If you've received a cancer diagnosis and learned that you must go through Chemotherapy, one of the most obvious side effects will be the loss of your hair. Some women are devastated by this while others take it in stride. Through this you are given the opportunity to learn about how deeply you identify yourself with your outward appearance. I would venture to say that most of us are taught from an early age that we should look our best in order to be socially acceptable.

Whatever your decision about hair loss may be, wigs, head coverings, or simply bald - hold your head up high. You will be filled with inner strength that possibly only another cancer survivor will understand but it will radiate from your face and being. Everyone will know that you are one tough cookie, a woman of substance, someone to be reckoned with...and also a person of great compassion because you bear the marks of having been there yourself and explored the depths of your soul. You have much to give back.

There are companies who understand this challenge. One such is Always Beautiful - Siempre Bella. They hand sew each head scarf to flatter the woman's face. They choose beautiful fabrics in a variety textures, colors and styles. Gretchen and her associates saw a need and filled it, helping to make the chemotherapy and hair loss experience a little easier by helping you like what you see when you look in the mirror. The scarves are affordable and reversible so you get two for the price of one.

This is a small way to make chemotherapy more bearable. If you are in need, please contact the wonderful website and try their product. Best wishes and hugs to anyone going through this experience. My heart is with you.

Lisa, its been a long time since I been here.
Beautiful post as always, and hope all is well.
The loss of hair is devastating, but what scares me that chemo is also carcinogenic, because a very powerful drug that kills also good cells in your body.
