Lisa Inspires Others to Dress Up For Chemo

So happy to see my friend Lisa getting the recognition she deserves for her amazing inspirational attitude to her challenges. A women of such dignity, caring, style and strength, I'm so proud to know her.  

"I dress for chemo like I'm on a night out" says Mother-of-four, 39, who found out she had incurable cancer two weeks before birth of her 'miracle' fourth child, says feeling glamorous helps her cope with gruelling treatment.

"A mother-of-four who was told her breast cancer had returned and become incurable just two weeks before the birth of her fourth child has revealed how she always 'glams up' for chemotherapy sessions. 

Nurses treating personal trainer Lisa Fry, 39, from Cheltenham have dubbed her the 'most glamorous patient' because she always arrives on the ward in heels and wearing her glad rags. 

Lisa already has three sons, Charlie, 14, Marley, 12, and Woody with husband Wayne, and Jagger, her fourth, was born on March 25, 2018. 

At 31, Lisa was breastfeeding her third son, Woody, ten, in 2011 when she found a lump in her left breast and was later diagnosed with stage three aggressive breast cancer."

The Lisa Bold Beanie cancer hair loss hat is named after my animal print loving friend:

This ready made gift takes difficult task of choosing which styles to choose from you and makes it quicker and easier... alternatively you can choose the hats you want in a bouquet by adding three or more hats to your basket and selecting the 'Make into Bouquet' option also. 

Silky soft stretchy cotton cancer hats made to fit snuggly onto a sore scalp with an emphasis on comfort and ease. Easy to put on and so soft and comfortable to forget about the hair loss and get on with daily activities or simply keep the head at an even temperature to get a good nights sleep.

The very first bouquet ever sent was to a woman suffering with Alopecia Areata, so suitable for all types of hair thinning, medical or otherwise. These stretchy breathable hats are also suitable to wear over hair as a sweat wicking barrier under all types of helmets and hard hats or hijabs.
