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

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.

What is a PICC Line ?

Posted by Emilienne Rebel on

What is a PICC Line ?

A PICC line is a long, thin, flexible tube called a catheter. PICC means Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters

It is used to give you chemotherapy and other medicines. A doctor or nurse puts it into a vein above the bend of your elbow. It can stay in place until your treatment is over.

You will be given a local anaesthetic to numb the area before the PICC line is put in. Your doctor or nurse will gently thread the line along the vein in your arm until it’s in a large vein in your chest. You will have an x-ray to check it’s in the correct position.

The PICC line is held in place by a dressing, which is usually changed every week. The cap at the end of the line is replaced each week to reduce the risk of infection. The line is flushed regularly to prevent it becoming blocked.

Bold Beanies PICC Line Covers can give you peace of mind against any catching the tube on clothing or in bed. Super soft, stretchy and breathable cotton material, our PICC Line Sleeves also come in beautiful Liberty prints and practical plains which can also match our cancer treatment hair loss hats.
