It’s a Wrap: Beautiful, Comforting & Free! Head Scarves For Cancer Patients
For a lot of people, losing their hair is one of the toughest parts about going through chemo.
“I think of almost all the things I endured during the diagnosis and the surgery and the treatment, losing my hair was the hardest,” says breast cancer survivor Susie Craig. “I had really think, long, dark hair and I just couldn’t imagine myself bald. It was very very difficult.”
When Craig was diagnosed with breast cancer at Overlake Hospital, she was given a pamphlet about the Good Wishes program, a non-profit that gives silk head scarves to cancer patients. It was started, almost by accident, five years ago by Laurie Erickson in North Bend.
