Raleigh,NC (April 29, 2013) College student Jessica Ekstrom founded Headbands of Hope in April 2012 after being inspired at her internship at the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Jessica discovered that girls loved to wear headbands instead of wigs after they lost their hair to chemotherapy treatments.

At Headbands of Hope, for each headband purchased, one headband will be donated to a girl with cancer and $1 will be donated to the St. Baldrick's Foundation to fund life-saving childhood cancer research.

Headbands of Hope carries ten different collections that come in sizes and styles for all ages.

Headbands of Hope has sold more than 4,000 headbands since it's launch. Headbands of Hope has also been featured on the TODAY Show, TOMS Shoes Blog and Fitness Magazine. The headbands have also been worn and supported by Trista Sutter and Ricki Lake.

About Headbands of Hope

Headbands of Hope aims to provide a movement to spread hope in all girls and fight in the battle against childhood cancer, one headband at a time. For every headband purchased, one will be given to a girl with cancer and $1 will be donated to the St. Baldrick's Foundation to fund life-saving childhood cancer research. When girls lose their hair during chemotherapy treatments, Headbands of Hope provides a way to preserve their feminine identity and have a constant reminder that they are not alone.
