A Girl and her Band has partnered with Hope Scarves for the month of October. A portion of all website headbands and "Amys Song" bands will go to this wonderful organization!

Hope Scarves partners with survivors to share headscarves and stories of hope with women facing cancer.

 

 

Lara MacGregor founded Hope Scarves after her personal experience with breast cancer.  Shortly after her diagnosis Lara received a box of scarves from a friend of a friend along with a note saying, “you can do this.”  Lara was moved by this gesture and wore the scarves throughout her treatment.  When she was done she passed the scarves on to a woman named Roberta.  When Roberta was finished with her treatment she sent them back to Lara and Lara passed them on to Brooke. This whole time Lara couldn’t stop thinking about the amazing journey these scarves were on. Hope Scarves was created to capture the stories of courageous women and encourage others by passing along scarves and stories of hope. The hope is that when each woman wraps a Hope Scarf around her head she feels the strength and determination of the women who wore it before her.

 

Hope Scarves vision is to change the way people experience cancer by making the journey less isolating and a little more beautiful.  We do this by supporting:

The Patient- Patients can receive a scarf and story of hope at no cost.  When they are finished with treatment they can send it back to pass along their encouragement to someone else.

The survivor – Survivors can live beyond cancer by donating their scarves and/or stories to encourage other women.

Friends and Family - Friends and family members can request a scarf be sent as a gift as a meaningful way to support a loved one.
