Met up with the lovely girls on the Copafeel stand at MODA and think they are doing a wonderful job getting the message out to everyone and especially younger women. I am always in mind of the wall as you walk through Mount Vernon Hospital towards the dreaded scanning section ‘EARLY DIAGNOSIS SAVES LIVES’ – so everyone get feelin’ ’cause you know your body better than anyone and if in doubt see a specialist.

We recently enjoyed meeting Claire from Chemo Headwear at the LOC in London.

And if turbans are your thing then they don’t get more up to the minute or stylish than those from our friends at Suburban Turban. We met them at the London Oncology Centre (otherwise known as The LOC) and they not only have fab styles and materials but also help with tying and styling – suitable for covering all degrees of hair loss following chemo.
