This morning a friend happily off chemo said --"who can I give my turbans
to--I want them out of the house". We both thought how many other people
must be looking for ways to pass on turbans to those that need them.
Thought about a 1-800-Turbans non-for-profit things--getting our local
churches to collect,wash, repackage with some support notes etc.--and
then mail them to whoever called 1-800-Turbans and needed one.
Any thoughts on this idea? Good? Bad? Ways to make it work?
Four years ago I would have promptly agreed. When I stopped chemo then, I
was anxious to get rid of the wigs and turbans and certain I would never need
them again. Somehow I never quite got around to it, and am happy I didn't!
I am on arimidex now, but if it doesn't succeed, chemo and hair loss is only
a few months away!
The ACS here in No.Va. has a sort of lending closet for wigs and things (I
got one there), maybe they also do turbans? Your idea has merit and if I
weren't being so negative on my third time around, I'd probably support it.
