ABonita Scarves

Two stories appeared this weekend in Florida about the Abonita Scarf, by Bonita Shamp. A "four-in-one head scarf that's perfect for those who may have lost their hair because of cancer treatment." Check her website for images, ordering, and explanation of "how to tie" these scarves, made for easy tying, and a slide show of four different ways to wear the scarves. Here are the two stories:

"Shop serves cancer patients"
It sells items they need and offers information about the disease.

When Diana Klunk was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, she knew it was some sort of divine intervention.

"I believe God gave me cancer for a reason," she said.

"I feel I was given cancer so that I know what it's like, and I can help people who are going through it."

She recently opened a shop called LifeChanges Boutique at the Hanover Community Health and Education Center at 400 York St. in Hanover.

The shop, which had a grand opening Monday, caters to women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

. . .

The store is filled with every necessary item, educational tool and even fun accessories, Klunk said. She carries a wide assortment of hats and Beau Beaus -- a kind of scarf that works as a head covering for those who lost their hair through chemotherapy.
