Cool for Chemo
Buff®s are a popular & fun form of headwear for all sorts of reasons, but for those who lose their hair e.g. through chemotherapy or alopecia, they provide special benefits. Take it from someone who knows - brave Addie Brady, who spent months fighting a rare form of bone cancer.
A baby Wallaby admires Addies Buff®!
“My name is Addie and I am 10 years old. Last year when I was nine I had cancer and had to have chemotherapy. My hair fell out quite quickly and I tried many hats and wigs (which were very hot and itchy!) before I came across buffs. My mum ordered one for me to try and I loved it.
My first buff was yellow and covered in monsters and spiders. It was colourful and fun but most of all it was comfortable! You can wear them in many different ways. My favourite way to wear it was to twist it inside out and then wear it like a beanie hat.
The great news is that Addie is now in remission. Her local paper paid tribute to her courage throughout her treatment by presenting her with an award & the prize of a getting close to animals at the local Wildlife Park. Although her hair has grown back, she continues to wear Buff®s along with other kids who don them for fun, fashion or functionality. Why not take a look at our Junior Buff Range?
