Hi Nicki,
Thank you so much for sending the hats and scarves so promptly. I was really happy to find your website because your things are the first I've seen that I genuinely like and will feel happy to wear. Receiving everything so quickly was great too, not to mention being a huge relief. And to have everything arrive so nicely packaged and wrapped, with your nice note inside, was icing on the cake.

Everything is as good or better than it looked on the website and the hats all fit perfectly. The reversible fishhat is so well suited to me that I may have to buy more in different colors! 
You have great products and fantastic service. Thanks so much for being there for us!
Best, 

Mary


Nicki,
The hats arrived today in excellent shape. I love them!!! I have never been a hat wearer (I've never been bald before either :) but I think I will become a lifetime hat person. Thank you for making a difference for us all.

Angela


Thank you, Nicki,

I really love your website, and your thoughtful, honest commentary on surviving ovarian cancer. I lost my sister in 1992 at age 46. I am 51 and was just diagnosed. But I am very lucky, it was caught really early (stage 1C) and the chemo is preventative, so a whole different outcome is expected. Regardless, hair loss isn't going to be any fun! I will probably be back for more cute spring hats - and I agree, I nice little wig for those times you just don't want to 'deal' with people is a good idea. Your website and your advice are a real comfort. Thanks again.

Debbie


Hi Nicki,
The hat arrived today and I couldn't be happier with it! In anticipation of losing my hair due to chemotherapy I have recently ordered a number of hats and scarves and this is the first one that truly looks as good in hand as it did on the website. Your personal touch is also much appreciated and so rare these days. As you can imagine, a cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatments are a huge turning point in one's life, but I have been both surprised and touched by the number of strangers (like yourself) who have reached out with a message of support. It is noticed, believe me, so keep up your fine work and I hope your business thrives.

Best Regards,

Patty


Thanks Nicki,

I own my own graphic design business and in my industry, style is very important. So far, your hats have hit the mark. I did buy two wigs - and again, based on your very honest opinion and advice, I am saving them for those important "I just don't want to deal with being bald" moments. So I chose really fun styles. In fact, they sort of make me crazy, because they are the hair I wish I had for the last 50 years! My poor husband is walking on egg shells because he wants to be complimentary and supportive, but can't be too 'wild' about these new looks. I did have, until last Tuesday, really cool 'real' hair. Perfect curls, and to die for salt and pepper streaks -  one of my best  assets. But, hey, it's only hair. 

And there are so many other blessings to count...who needs to 'split' hairs. I will visit your site often and look forward to the spring line. Use whatever comments you need - and call me or 'e' me if you need more. My sister’s story was so similar to yours - and she didn't have your same outcome.  I am so happy for your good health, and the help you offer to others. Thank you. 

Deb

Dear Nicki –

I just wanted to say how beautiful all my scarves are. I'm just tickled with everything. The instructions were well written and easy to understand, which means a lot, in and of itself, to me right now! The quality and beauty brings tears to my eyes....but then again, I do that a lot lately....:-)  Thank you so much, and I'll hand out your cards to my friends who I think would love your scarves just as much as I do! Plus, I'm sure I'll have to have a few more as time goes on..........

Thank YOU! 

Jennifer

Dear Nicki,
I received the two items yesterday. Thank you for such speedy service and for the quality of my merchandise. They both more than meet my expectations! I would also like to thank you for the lovely, hand-written note you enclosed. It provided a real sense of communication, so missing in today's culture. Shopping the internet is fun and efficient, but generally lacks the warmth that is the "lagniappe" in the Web shopping experience.
Your Web site is enjoyable as well as full of great merchandise; thank you for sharing your experiences with the world.  That is not always an easy thing to do.

I'm still waiting to lose my hair but I'm feeling more confident now that I have your two items to help bridge the transition. And, since my work entails me to stand over steaming dye pots on a regular basis, you can be
sure that the scarf will be filling in frequently for the alternative "hair."
All the best,

Christine

Hi Nicki –

Thank you in advance for the order I just placed. I know I'll love these new ones just as much as my first order. I think the Ribbon scarf is just the cutest. I've been getting so many compliments when I wear the ones I have, I just had to have some more colors to choose from. The Mediterranean is so soft and lovely, I had to have another one of them also.....:-)  I have a beautiful wig that I wear, but I live in Lake Havasu AZ and it is already getting so warm here, that I only like wearing my wig out at night. The scarves are just so much more comfortable, and I'm all about comfort these days! tee-hee. Please let me know when you post the new scarves that are coming in. I'd love to see them.

Thank you again –

Jennifer

Dear Nicki,

I just received my hair lo this afternoon. First off, I can't believe it arrived so quickly! Thank you for making the package much more like a special gift. So very thoughtful. The hairpiece looks and fits great. I'm taking it on vacation next week to the Florida gulf coast. Also, thanks for the very reasonable shipping charges. I can't believe what some places charge and timeframe is much longer. Greatly appreciate doing business with you! 

Sincerely,

Susan

Hi Nicki,
Just to let you know that my hats arrived this morning. I have tried them on and they are all brilliant and a perfect fit. Many thanks for your personal attention to detail. I will certainly recommend you to others I meet on my journey, and probably come back for more myself.
Best wishes,

Jacquie

Hello! I just wanted to thank you for your incredible service this week in delivering my hats. We received the Hanna and 3-Seam caps today, and my daughter loves them! My daughter is 7 years old, and she was diagnosed with cancer three weeks ago. She started losing her hair about 5 days ago, and it's almost completely gone.  She was thrilled when she saw the caps I bought from your website. She put one on and never took it off for the rest of the day. She loved how soft it felt. I'm amazed with how well my daughter has accepted her hair loss. She's an incredibly brave little girl.

Sincerely,

Kelly

Nicki, my daughter loves her 3-seam turbans. We ordered two more this evening, in purple and bubblegum. 

Your turban hats are the only thing she likes to wear for her extended stays in the hospital for chemotherapy, and you wouldn't believe all the compliments she receives about them from her doctors and nurses. We're due to go back to the hospital for a few days on April 18. Thanks again for offering these wonderful products.

Kelly (Yes, you can definitely use my e-mail on your testimonial page) 

I forgot to mention, but my daughter was diagnosed with an ovarian germ cell tumor. We caught it before it spread to her lungs. Apparently, this is a very rare form of cancer in seven year olds. But they're giving her an excellent prognosis.

I think we'll probably be ordering more 3-Seam hats this week. My daughter loves them so much and never takes them off. 

Kelly

My hats arrived today and are perfect. They were such a treat to open after my five hour day of my first chemo treatment. I feel great! Thank you for doing business in such a fine manner.

Beth

Hi Nicki,

I have to tell you how impressed I am with your company! I was at my mother's house on Saturday when her hats where delivered, as you said they would be, and I was so happy to see that not only were they placed in nice tissue with beautiful ribbons wrapped around them, but a wonderful card was enclosed as well, from you. You brought a smile to my mother's face, during a very difficult time and I am so grateful to you.

I am happy to report that she loves the hats! They are so soft and comfortable and she felt pretty, for the first time since she had her remaining hair shaved off. Thank you so much!!

Sincerely and with great appreciation,

Kelly

Nicki,

Thank you very much for the email. I love your website...I am very impressed with the selection. I admire what you are doing to help those in need. I am an advocate for women's health, wellness and especially awareness. Your ability to provide a product that will help women feel pretty again, or at the least not so self conscious, will enable these women to try to maintain a positive outlook. In my opinion a positive attitude can do wonders for ones soul and health. I am so glad I found your website, I will be passing it on to some dear friends! 


Dear Nicki,

I received your beautiful scarves and would like to express my sincere appreciation for your personal touch. I guess I was one of the lucky ones, it took longer for my hair to fall out than they said, but today I wore one of your scarves for the first time. People really noticed how cute it was. I am in the process of ordering more and read your personal account on your website and was very moved. How very uplifting it was to read what you wrote. So thank you. What you do makes a big difference.

Sincerely,

Diane

Thank you, Nicki! 

I ordered the scarves for a friend who has lupus and taking meds that are beginning to cause hair loss. She is struggling with the high cost of her co-pay for medications and upset about the hair loss. It was good to see her excited about the various head pieces. Thank you for being so prompt. Everything looked wonderful and I know we have done a good thing.  

Jeanne

Wow ...
Nicki, I wish I'd read your website thoroughly before I ordered, I actually wish I'd read it a week ago before Marti asked me to shave her head ... I wouldn't have taken so much, leaving that scratchy stubble she ended up with. I think the two hats I ordered are OK, but hopefully she will look at your site, and order something she likes, or needs more.
Marti and I have never been close, and I was surprised that she asked me to do such a thing for her instead of her own children, or a close friend. On the other hand maybe my distance from her made it easier in a way?
In any case, thank you for all you do. Your story touched me deeply.

Tamara

Thank you.  I received the hat last Wednesday and I love it. It'll look very cute on my friend. 

Thanks again,

Lisa

Thank you so much. I got my first order in record time. I liked the hats so much, I found some more.

Thank you again.

Julia

I am looking forward to receiving my newest hat. I have finished 2 treatments and had my head "buzzed" to 0 ten days after the 1st treatment. It was coming out in handfuls. I never wore hats before now--but I'm enjoying the variety and my co-workers can't wait to see what I wear into work each day. Thanks for providing a service to those in need. It makes the journey a little easier.

Sincerely,

Eileen

You are so wonderful and I am so thankful I found you and your website! I'm taking your card into Stanford University Hospital's Cancer Care Center. They have a concierge service that makes a list of companies that have scarves, hats, wigs, etc. for cancer patients, and I am going to make sure you're added to their list. Your products are outstanding, and your customer service is amazing!!!

Thanks, Nicki! I wear your scarf and liner more than any other scarf or hat; they're great!

Dear Nicki,

Thank you so much! Since we are heading into a typical Chicago winter, the batting liner will work great. I will also get the terry liner and yes, I love that scarf.

My mom had lung cancer. She told me once, "When the doc told me I had cancer, I cried, but I said, what's next? When my hair started to fall out, that's when I felt like a sick person."

Anyway, thank you again for the support and the advice. I will be ordering soon because I like my wigs, but there are those days...

Be well!

Hello Nicki,

Thank you very much for the fast shipment. The hat is adorable!

And thank you also for the nice presentation! I will take everything with me on my trip to Germany, because the hat is a present for my sister.

Thanks again and be well,

Marion

Hi Nicki,

I just found your site and love your hats, scarves, etc. I have alopecia areata universalis, which means, of course, that I have no hair - and because there is no treatment for my disease, I must work hard to look and feel as normal as I can in a world that can never see a bald woman as "normal."

If I go out in a scarf or hat, I am mistaken for being in chemo. If I say, no, I have alopecia, I get a blank stare. No one knows what it is. For this, I blame medical research and the apathy of the medical community to treat alopecia as an illness, but that's another story.

I so appreciate in one of the sections where it is mentioned that for a woman with cancer, seeing her hair fall out is the worst and watching it grow back is a supreme joy, so much so that "you'll be so happy to see your hair, you won't care if it comes back with green stripes."

I paraphrase this, but it makes the point beautifully that hair loss, whether from chemo or if the disease itself is baldness, is horrible.

Thanks for your help and thanks for being here - for all women that have lost their hair.

Be well,

Terese,

Hi Nicki,

My scarves have arrived and they are terrific. Thank you so much for the excellent service. Your card was a lovely touch.
Sincerely,

Pat

Hi Nicki,

I ordered your lime green hat for my granddaughter. She has just had her 4th brain surgery and will be starting chemo and radiation soon. This will be her second round of this. I know she will be needing some hats, so I thought I would start her off with this one. It is really cute. Thank you and I'm sure I will be placing more orders soon.

Shirley

Thanks very much Nicki. Since my friend just started chemo on Friday, we have a little time for her to experiment with scarves before she needs them to protect her soon-to-be-bare head from the sun. I'll be honest, I'm impressed with the amount of really good information you have on your site, as well as all of the options you have available. I work for the California Cancer Registry, and while I can't officially promote your site, I can spread it by word of mouth more effectively than some people  :)
My friend who's just started chemo will, in all likelihood, be sharing your website with her oncologist and oncology nurses, hope it brings a lot of business your way, because you're doing a very good thing. 

Bright blessings for all you do…

Alan

Hi Nicki,

Thanks for the sweet reply. My friend Della just loved her scarves, and she said the tying guide was just what she needed. I passed on a couple of your business cards, and sent your website URL out across the country, hope it helps. I'll look forward to checking the website in a day or two for the new stuff. I may even get Mom the angora beret & scarf for her birthday, just because they're stunning.  :)

Alan

Nicki,

Thank you so much for your personal attention. I really appreciate it. I have to tell you that I have been searching for awhile for a comfortable sleeping cap. Some of the ones I have tried are awful. My kitten was snapping the elastic on my forehead on the last one! I'm so glad I found your website. Thank you for your wonderful product and your best wishes.

Lori

Hello Nicki,

My hat arrived today, and I just LOVE it! You are right, it's a beauty. The wonderful wrapping and note card was much appreciated. You really went the extra mile, and I'll definitely be a repeat customer. Also, I'll make sure to direct my hat-loving friends to your website.

Thanks a million,

Deb

Hi Nicki,

How kind of you to send an email. What great customer service! I'll definitely shop with you again. I'm sure the hat will be terrific. Looking forward to its arrival.

Best wishes,

Deb

Thanks so much - I have received my hats and they are perfect!!!!!

Hi Nicki ~

I received my ginger scarf and batting scarf pad today and wanted to let you know that I am so pleased! Thank you so much for your wonderful products, quick delivery, and lovely wrapping/presentation.

I'll definitely be back for more things and I'm going to take your card into my chemo appointment at Stanford Hospital to let everyone know about your website and wonderful products.

Good health to you,

June

Thank you very much Nicki - I kind of hope that by some miracle the cold cap will work and I won't need them! (But I am looking forward to wearing them whatever because they are sweet)  
I stumbled on to your website while trying to prepare for the next few months. Your website is smashing at a number of levels: in the first instance at a practical level - good products, good prices, easy to use. I also found it very positive, supportive (if that's what people are looking for) and realistic - I hate saccharine and sympathy stuff!
I am looking forward to receiving my parcel - Great website, great service.
Thanks again,

Christine

Dear Nicki,

Thanks for sending out my items so quickly. I got them on Saturday! The scarf is great! Thank you so much for all your help and your support and good wishes.
Be well,

Sue Ann

Thank you! My friend Susan loved the scarves and hats from your website - the scarves are our favorites! Thanks again for the lovely things!

Thank you so much. The sleep cap arrived today and it was so lovely the way you wrapped it and personalized it. I go for my stem cell transplant on Tuesday, so please send good thoughts my way.

Warm regards,

Andrea

Thanks, Nicki.

My order arrived today, the day I cut my waist-length hair into a pixie in anticipation of the shedding to come with my chemo. I have breast cancer. Your scarves are simply lovely, and I look forward to showing them off.

Susan

Nicki-

Thanks so much for your help. I know my mom will love the hat & hopefully it will place a smile on her face... She recently was diagnosed with breast cancer & we are battling this together...

You have been so kind...

Sincerely,

Debi

Hello Nicki,

Thank you for the alert on the delivery. I appreciate such a quick turn-around after the order placement. The hat (The Men’s Explorer) is exactly what my husband needs. He's working in 120 degree heat in Iraq and is only wearing a little canvas hat. This hat should be a major improvement! Take care, and thank you again.
Sincerely,

Chris

Hello Nicki.

You were RIGHT! The hat is fantastic! I know my husband will love it as much as I do. Thank you for the very rapid response. I appreciate the special care you took in wrapping the hat and enclosing the card. I will bookmark your site. It is the best one I've dealt with.

Very sincerely,

Chris

Hi Nicki,

Thank you for your note.  Everything arrived yesterday. All the hats are exactly as I expected. Thank you for your helpful business and for your supportive way. I recently lost my hair through alopecia, and your website has helped me feel confident as a bald person. And the hats help make it fashionable when I'm not up to shocking people (or myself) with my bald beauty.
Blessings,

Sally

I'm very happy - I really like the flapper hat. I think I'll order at least one more. I start chemo in a couple of weeks, and I feel relieved to have something that I know I can feel OK about wearing. Thank you so much.

Thank you for your lovely package, it was like Christmas in June! How nice to get your note and it couldn't have come at a better time. My hair started falling out that very morning.

God Bless you Nicki for this ministry of yours.... your heart’s in it I can tell. I was talking to a young lady during our treatment and mentioned how lovely your sight was and the 'Christmas' package I received and I gave her one of your cards. I hope she contacts you because she was looking for scarves and you have so many fun and beautiful one.

Thank you again,

Maureen

Hi Nicki,

The hair-lo is great. Thanks. Please send me some more cards. I have already put your cards and brochures in my oncology office.

Thank you

Susan

Hello Nicki,

My hats and scarves arrived yesterday, thank you. What a lovely surprise to open the parcel and find your lovely note and the hats so beautifully wrapped with ribbons. I love them all and can't wait to wear them. We started off having some nice weather for the last few weeks but the last couple of days have been heavy rain--British weather eh!!!
Best Regards,

Lisa

Hi Nicki.

I received the hat already. I am very happy with it. I was also very impressed with the personalized note and they way the hat was presented in the wrapping. Thank you very much.

Janice

Hello. I was very happy with my order and just placed another one. Your extra customer care is really special - how nice to get such personalized attention.

Best regards,

Jen

Hi Nicki,

Thanks so much! Please remember to include some more of your cards. I know that once I start wearing your hats, people are going to want to know where they came from. As I mentioned, I work for Kaiser -Permanente and am in contact with physicians and many patients on a daily basis.

Thank you again,

Susan

Nicki--again, thanks your help. And you so thoughtfully wrapped the package -- at first I thought it was a gift someone was sending me.
I decided to send you a photo of myself and let you help me determine which hair color I need. I'd like it to be close to my own (graying!) hair if possible.

Thank you! I appreciate the service! It is so nice to look more "normal" after losing my hair. I have a wig, but the hair lo will be so much cooler in the heat and humidity of Ohio this summer. Plus, I'm just having fun with the hats!

Nancy

Nicki, I just got the hair-lo and the flapper hat. I am very pleased with the quality of both items I'm looking forward to getting the other hat. I will be sure to recommend you. 
Thank you.

Nancy

Hi Nicki –

My beautiful scarves (I LOVE the royal blue) were waiting for me when I got home. I just love the giraffe one also. That motif is not usually my style, but all my girlfriends are just going to love it on me. And it's so versatile! and very light weight. Thank you again for your beautiful products!  I'm handing out your cards, whenever someone asks me where I get my scarves!

Sincerely,

Jennifer

Thanks for your prompt response to my order. I've enjoyed reading your website and hearing about your own story (which is inspiring and cheering) and getting the information you have there. I was diagnosed with acute leukemia at the end of March (on my birthday, of all days!), but have been doing well so far and tolerating the chemo well. Losing my hair was hard, but I'm having fun getting a wig and wearing hats. My friends are very supportive and I feel loved and encouraged and I'm going to beat this thing!
Thanks again -- you are doing a great service and inspiring people at the same time. I'll look forward to getting the hats and hair piece. 

Nancy

Hi Nicki,
Thank you for your quick response. Thanks for the free shipping. I am interested in a no border Mediterranean scarf.  The blue one:  Code: NB_134 .
I am looking forward to using the scarves. It looks like my hair will be going this week, so I am trying to get prepared. I really appreciate your website! Where I live, it is not easy to find cool & beautiful scarves. I'm sure I will be ordering more things from your website.
Best,

Lena

Hi Nicki –

I'm back at CTAC getting chemo treatment #4, so I'll look forward to my beautiful scarves when I get home. I'm feeling like the Whiley Coyote that's been run over a steamroller.  *sigh*.....  but it's working and making me well, so that's what I focus on. 

Thank you so much for all you do,

Jennifer

Thanks so much!  I have ordered your scarves for my mom in the past and she wanted some summer colors!  She says your scarves are so comfortable! 

Laureen

Thank you! I'm squealing excited!
I have a hard time finding hats that fit. My head measures 22-1/2 inches around...most heads are 20 to 21 inches, so it's hard to find ones that I can wear. You have a great web site :-) I'm sure I'll be ordering more items in the future.

Dear Nicki,

Sorry for not getting back to you immediately but I have been down with gastroenteritis (just what I need on top of everything else). Anyway just to say that your package arrived safely on Friday afternoon. Many thanks. The scarves are really beautiful. Let's see if the scarves and hair halo will sort out my worries about wigs during the summer. I'll think about the other hair piece but I have to say that with scarves I prefer to have a little fringe. At least it suits me better. With a hat it is different for sure, so let's see.

Many thanks again for you concerns. I am grateful to have your website for hats and scarves as there is nothing here in the UK at all, just basic turbans and a few sad hats. So I can see that you can build a good international business.

With kind regards,

Barbro

Hi Nicki –

Thank you for the update, I'll look forward to the giraffe scarf (I love the pattern around the edges) and the blue ribbon. I just love being able to tie them up and around my heard. I get more complements about how different/striking and put together I look when I wear them. Thank you for supplying such beautiful items.

Jennifer

Hi Nicki –

The Royal Blue Ribbon scarf sounds beautiful, I would love one. That seems to be my favorite scarf. I like being able to wrap it up and over my head. It gives it so much more "oomph" if you know what I mean. EVERY time I wear one, I get compliments and women wanting to know how it's tied, so I've gotten good at taking them off and putting them back on without a mirror :-) That's why I'm giving out so many of your cards.  When the new giraffe scarf comes in, you could send the royal blue ribbon scarf at the same time.

Thank you so much for having such beautiful pieces at such affordable prices that I can get them in so many colors!

Best Regards –

Jennifer

Nicki :) I got the scarves yesterday and experimented with tying them - it'll take just a bit of practice! I'm really happy with them. They're so much more stylish than just tying a bandana around my head.
Thanks,

Sarah

Hi Nicki,

Thank you so much for the hats - they arrived on Monday. They are just beautiful! The perfect gift for my friend to help her feel beautiful and feminine!
Thank you again.

Stephanie

Thanks Nicki for your very personalized customer service. I look forward to receiving my hats :)

Natalie

Many, many thanks...my daughter loves stuff from Nepal...unusual fabrics, etc.  If you get anything new and interesting in, please email me. She'll be in chemo through next February at least...

Janet

Hello Nicki,

thank you for your e-mail. I received the hats I ordered. I Love them!! And I have to say, the beanie is the softest and warmest thing I've ever worn!!!! (I really should have had ordered another one, maybe I will)

Anyway, keep up the good work and the comfy and stylish hats!!

Lani

Dear Nicki,

The Explorer is a wonderful hat. I would like to order the Men's medium. If it is too big, my husband will use it and I will have you order the women's model. 

Also, I would like to talk to you about the hair-lo. I think it would work for me but I need to talk to you about color. Perhaps the dark ash blonde would be my color. I will try calling you later today.

My hair has finally started to go; yesterday the first few strands came out and today it is really shedding. The information on your web site was the only explicit information on timing of this phenomenon. Every place else was so vague. Everything is easier to deal with when you know what to expect.

All the best,

Christine

Nicki, Thanks again for the great service and support. By the way, all of your models are great! Sincerely,

Susan

Dear Nicki, Helen received the cap and loved it. Thank you for taking an interest. Your note was greatly appreciated. Thank you once again,
Happy Spring

Audrey

Thank you, I received the hat today and it is more than I had expected. Thank you for your speedy response to my order.

Margaret


Dear Nicki, thanks so much for letting me know. I didn't know I ordered 2 of the same. I would like to order the blooming love and the chambray. My mom has blue eyes and I think those two would look good together or separate for her.  

Thanks for getting them out so quickly. My mom lives in Florida and she didn't tell me, her sister told me, she had lost most of her hair. She had planned on a wig, but her sister told me it was too hot. She just had her 4th chemo session and her white blood cell level was 0.9. I don't know what that means, but it doesn't sound good.  She has uterine cancer. 

Bless you for helping my mom feel better about herself. She is trying to work and still go through chemo so she can keep her insurance. I worry very much about her.

Sincerely,

Amy

Thanks for the special touch, I really appreciate it!

Carley

Thanks for being so prompt in getting the turban to me.  It is a gift for a friend, and it is perfect timing for Easter.  God bless you.  

Mary

Hi Nicki,
I love your website! Please send the military hat in olive. These hats are for a 17 year old recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I know she these hats are going to make the hair loss easier for her.

Judy

Nicki,

They arrived today. Adorable. I will make a point to check your site frequently. You have been the ABSOLUTE BEST person to deal with on the web!

Happy Days.

Thanks,

Janice

Hi Nicki,

Thank you so much for the speedy shipping and the wonderful hat and scarf (and for your nice note)! They arrived today, just in time (today, my hair started literally leaping off my head. Every brush stroke came away covered in a thick swath of hair. Aaack! But with my fun new fish hat and the comfy scarf, I am feeling much less panicky about it. (The fish hat is perfect for me -- purple is my favorite color, I'm a Pisces, and it's just the right level of fun & funky. I love it! Have attached a picture so you can see how much we like each other, my fish hat and I.)

I am in the midst of chemo treatments for breast cancer (for the second time; my first bout with breast cancer was nine years ago, and while I'm not happy to be doing this again, I'm grateful that this is a new primary and not a metastatic recurrence of my 1998 cancer). I'm 21 days past my first chemo -- just had my 2nd chemo today -- and my hair is definitely on its way out.

I did notice you were located in Spokane, and was sorry I didn't live closer so I could come to your salon and meet you. Your website is wonderful, very welcoming and reassuring. And, it provides great info about hair loss from chemo. Some of the articles brought tears to my eyes: because I understood what you and your customers had gone through -- and because I knew you would understand what I'm going through now. (It's funny; although I was expecting to have an easier time with the hair loss because I'd been through it before, I'm finding that it's actually harder in some ways -- perhaps because I had gotten so much more attached my hair after it grew back from the first time.)

Once again -- thank you so much for your wonderful website and your wonderful hats!

Warm regards,

Betsy

Thanks for all your help, Nicki. I can't wait to give my sister in law the hats! 

Hi Nicki,

I have breast cancer and just recently started my first Chemo treatment. I found your web site and I really like the Reversible Pill Box Hat in Natural. I live in Vermont and my husband and I love to fish so I thought this hat would be very appropriate for fishing.

I certainly enjoyed your story. It helped me face some of my own demons about having breast cancer.

Thank you

Pam

Nicki,

Thanks for getting my order out so quickly. I work for an Oncology clinic and it seems that the other patients notice the different hats and scarves I wear and always ask where I get them. I will be happy to pass on your brochures and cards.

Thanks again,

Judy 

Hi Nicki, 

I received the Mediterranean scarf today and I love it. I'll be ordering more. I love the size and also the lightness of the fabric. Thanks for the quick delivery.

Hi Nicki,

I wanted to let you know how much I love the scarf I received from you last week. I had my head shaved today (I wanted to get it before it got me) and I am wearing the scarf as we speak. It feels so good, I just had to order more.

Also, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the inspiring story of your life with cancer. We women are amazing creatures aren't we?

Enjoy your day!

Hi Nicki,

I just received my hats from you and they are absolutely gorgeous. I'd like your input, please. Next week will be the start of spring. I think the hats I ordered were mostly winter. Do you think I need to change them for some that are lighter weight? I want my sister-in-law to get some use out of them. They really are so beautiful. What do you think?

Thank you for your help,

Patty

Nicki - thanks so much.  Your website is great.

Good Evening Nicki:

I received the short hair lo yesterday and it is beautiful. How did you get it here so fast? You are quite an amazing person. Tonight I read your "history" on your website. You are one brave cookie.

Thanks to you, again, for your wonderful service and lovely products. I wish I lived near you and could shop in person.

Hi Nicki,
Thank you for your phone call yesterday, and for helping me choose a scarf and hat. I am really excited and looking forward to their arrival!
I also want to say how kind and helpful you were and having read more on your Web site and about you I think you are a truly amazing woman. Your web site is also very informative.
Again thank you for your kindness.

Thank you for your message, and for the excellent customer service! I look forward to receiving my hat--it looks great on your site, and I think it will be a lovely addition to my hat wardrobe! 

Best regards,

Christine

You are awesome! Thanks for the advice. You have certainly found a loyal customer in me.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi Nicki,

Thanks for sending my order out so quickly. I love hats and need it since I live in Chicago, but I can never find one that fits my head. You see, my head size is 20 1/2 so my hat size is probably 6 1/2. If you have more hats that will fit my head please let me know. I liked the wool blend newsboy hat, buy wasn't sure if that will fit me.

Thanks,

Reena

Hey Nicki,

Thanks for the quick response and help. My friend Vicki got her hat yesterday! Yea! And she loved it! Thanks for your help.

Thank you so much for all your personal attention! This gift is for a friend who is just about to begin chemo. I really liked the items on your site and the experience you share.

With prayers for your continued health,

Nicki, they arrived today. Thanks so much. Your service is SO speedy! Loved both items - and your pretty ribbons and card. Your products are helping me thru chemo and baldness!

IN SPOKANE:

After my diagnosis and before undergoing the rigors of chemotherapy, I went to Nicki for advice. She gave me a terrific haircut, and then she helped me find the right wigs, to tie scarves and, most of all, to laugh. Her vitality, her kindness, and her wisdom touched me deeply. I left the salon feeling hopeful, the most necessary ingredient I know in the healing process.

I was desperate. I had started chemo for breast cancer and my hair was falling out. I went to a hairdresser who had promised to find me a good wig. Well, I have a very large head and the largest wig she found kept popping off. I left feeling scared and helpless. A friend in my support group had given me Nicki's phone number. I called her almost in tears, and Nicki came to my rescue. She found me a wig and several stylish hats that fit perfectly. Nicki truly understands the needs of the cancer patient and the importance of attractive, high quality headcoverings.

"You look great!" I was thrilled to hear my former classmates say at my 30 year high school reunion. I was in treatment for cancer and Nicki helped me find a wonderful wig--short and spunky with lots of highlights. I also bought a hair ring (face framer) to wear with my hats on hot summer days, so I could keep biking and boating. Nicki helped me feel good and look pretty during a challenging time.

Having walked through her own journey with ovarian cancer, Nicki has a unique gift of compassion for the trials and tribulation of the cancer patient and a spirit of enthusiasm for life and its treasures. She not only helps you discover the physical beauty you are endowed with, she also wraps her arms around your spirit and invites you to take that beauty into the world. Nicki is a beacon of light in a journey that can carry us through much darkness. Thank-you!

A lot of women have said to me, "I don't know how I could have gotten through this without Nicki." Nicki lights the way with her loving and practical assistance. She helps women find the healer within and refocus their fear toward gratitude for their bodies and spirits, which are working so hard to heal and thrive. She is a powerful ally. I recommend her with an open heart.
