“We look at alternatives to cancer-y things,” says Kristine Knudsen. “People don’t want to have to wear something that is ‘good enough.’ Our head coverings are the perfect example of a range of prices and solutions. We have hats designed for surfers, yoga community head coverings, custom turbans designed by a Los Angeles woman and Anokhi Indian cotton scarves. Many of our vendors work with us and allow us to ask for special prices because they feel like they’re part of the healing that happens. We feel connected to the people whose work we have here.” Angela adds, “Being a non-profit means that anything above our operating costs goes to support the free psycho-social programs and support groups at the Simms/Mann Center for Integrative Oncology.”
