The origin of the project

According to numerous studies, 65% of cancer patients suffer from alopecia (hair loss). This side effect of treatment is a traumatic experience for the majority of patients. It was found that out of 600 patients, 200 wanted to find an alternative to traditional wigs or other accessories.

Our answer


The "Caring Hats" are as similar to everyday hats as possible, so that you don't look different or "sick". They are perfectly adapted to the new head shape. In this way, the project meets a real need. A Caring Hat is an elegant and appropriate response to a painful situation, to the need to be seen for who you are. A Caring Hat inspires admiration rather than compassion.

Professor Martine Piccart, director of scientific research at the Institut Jules Bordet and an international leader in the fight against breast cancer, says: " The project is bold and pioneering because it will help and improve the well-being and self-esteem of patients. These are aspects that are often forgotten, although they are essential pillars in the treatment of the disease. »
