About Headbands of
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.
