Happy Birthday to Lotte & Happy 'Chemoversary' to me...

Posted by Emilienne Rebel on

Happy Birthday to Lotte & Happy 'Chemoversary' to me...

October 5th not only marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month but my Daughter's Birthday... and the day I had my second Chemotherapy for Stage 4 advanced Breast Cancer. I was aged 31 and my eldest daughter had just turned 4 a few weeks previously and had started school. 

Shortly after these blurry photos were taken, doing my best to smile (and make sure they didn't realise anything was wrong), the nurse arrived to give me my second course of chemotherapy. This led to me losing my hair and eventually deciding to make Bold Beanies when and if I ever felt better... to make fellow Cancer Hair Loss sufferers treatment just a little bit more bearable. 

I'd had a lot of surgery and found it difficult to lift my arms so therefore couldn't really tie a scarf or keep one in place. I hated my wig as it was just so uncomfortable and made me feel even more self conscious than my bald head. This was the days before the great big internet shopping world and I struggled to find headwear that wasn't targeted at older ladies... to fussy and outdated for me. I wore woollen hats which were often too hot and itchy.

Comfy, soft and stylish cancer headwear for younger women diagnosed with Breast Cancer and others who just need to cover up for their family and get on with their day. 

I had my chemotherapy at home. Something I didn't consider very much and just thought practical because my children were so young, but with hindsight I regret as I never had the chance to bond and talk to other chemo patients. I was left to make conversation with a not too sociable nurse for hours on my own and found it a very hard, cold (probably due to the cold drip) and isolating experience... especially knowing the sickness which was about to follow. 

I've made up for the lack of birthday party every year since btw... I make a point of it :) and the highlight of my year! Well apart from Christmas and Halloween and any other holiday in between that I use as an excuse to decorate our home and have fun with my girls :)

The Website For Soft Comfy Cancer Surgery Hats Chemo Headwear & Alopecia Hair Loss

Bold Beanies were designed by Emilienne many years ago whilst undergoing chemotherapy treatment for Stage 4 Breast Cancer when she wanted something super soft and comfortable to stay covered up in front on the family, keep warm but also stylish and pretty for a younger person going through cancer. 

These award winning cancer hats are made to exceptional high standards using the best quality cotton based stretchy fabric from Liberty Art Fabrics which is famous all over the world for quality and the best designs. Minimal seams and not irritating labels make for a comfortable beanie. The stretchy fabric allows the cap to fit snuggly but not tightly onto a bald sensitive scalp and stay put whilst you get on with your day or get a good nights rest. Not too hot or cold, the breathable fabric wicks away sweat and keeps the head at an even temperature. 

Will you go for a plain hat or get one customised with a name or slogan of your choice? Or choose from the wide range of beautiful pattered Liberty prints? 

Designed to be worn day or night, on their own or layered up under another beanie or head scarf... show us how you wear yours. Matching scarves and PICC line covers available now.
