    Free It's a Wrap head scarf for chemo patients
    PinkLady44 posted:
    Ladies - you can get a FREE head scarf or have one sent to anyone you know who is going through chemo and is experiencing hair loss/thinning as a result. These are lovely. I have one and get compliments on it every time I wear it! How I found out about it was through an article in our local paper: ( )
    It's about Laurie Erickson, a local businesswoman, who sells boutique scarves and accessories in North Bend, WA. She also has a special program called "Good Wishes" where you can get one FREE scarf of your choosing. You just have to click on the "Good Wishes" link on the site and browse through the choices, then send them an email or call the toll-free # with your top 2 to 3 choices. In 4-6 weeks you will have your scarf, sooner if the fabric/style is in stock. I got mine in about 3 weeks. It's lovely and has a crystal "fairy" on the tail of it. You also get a personally signed card from all of the employees with their "good wishes".

    Here's all you need to do, per the instructions I got by emailing them:

    Thank you for contacting us about our Good Wishes program. We will respond personally as quickly as possible and look forward to helping you.

    Briefly, the way Good Wishes works is that, when possible, we direct women to our website, , and tell them to click on the Good Wishes logo in the upper right-hand corner of the website. That will take them to a page that describes the program. On this page is a link ("Click here to see examples of our "It's A Wrap") which provides a look at hundreds of fabrics that we offer in either our It's A Wrap or a regular 32" square scarf (not shown on the website). Women, or their friends and loved ones, choosetwo or three fabrics that suit their coloring and style and then contact us by phone (888-884-3653) or e-mail ( ). We then send the first available wrap or scarf directly to these women along with our Good Wishes! If someone does not have access to the internet, we are more than happy to talk with them about their style preferences and select something beautiful for them. We do tell everyone that it may take 4-6 weeks for the scarf to arrive, but could arrive sooner depending upon stock and demand.

    I know this is a great idea and a worthwhile venture - they give part of their profits to a breast cancer research foundation into triple-negative breast cancers.
