Headband anniversary

Local company Headbands of Hope celebrates its second year in business with a Make Your Own Headband event Thursday at Duke Children’s Hospital in Durham. Girls can choose their own headband and flower.

Headbands of Hope was created for girls who are undergoing chemotherapy and have lost their hair. The headbands have become popular for all girls and women, even those not facing cancer.

With every purchase, the company donates $1 to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fund childhood cancer research.
