BB Blog — style
Posted by Emilienne Rebel on
If anything my friend Lisa's example has set (please see previous blog post) is that if you want, despite a scary Cancer diagnosis, you can still look stylish during chemotherapy treatments.
Chemotherapy varies between people, but will invariably make you at the least feel tired. I, unfortunately, was on the other end of the scale and suffered severely with sickness and fatigue. I looked rather shockingly ill on the days receiving and post chemo infusion. I was bloated from steroids and lost all my hair. But in my 3 weekly drugs cycle I had one 'good week' where I felt better, stronger and wanted to take back some of my life and spend time with my family and friends not feeling and looking like a cancer patient. I struggled to find decent headwear as all of the products available were for older women and as a younger woman, I still wanted to look stylish and fashionable (hence the idea for Bold Beanies).
