Courage for the Soul provides a Scarf of Courage, at no cost, to anyone experiencing the thinning or loss of hair as a result of chemotherapy. Each scarf is a gift of courage that carries with it the support and infinite wishes of people who care. It also represents the courage and strength of those who wear it. Our goal is to, in some way, ease their journey, provide a "ray of sunshine" through a beautiful scarf, and inspire hope and courage to keep fighting cancer. If a woman is currently receiving chemotherapy treatment, they may request a Scarf of Courage. A scarf with a "ray of sunshine", along with a message of courage, will be sent to lift their soul on those dark days.
My Cancer StoryMaria Luisa Gonzalez - Founder and CEO
As a woman, losing my hair was such a profound experience. During my breast cancer journey, it was then that I realized how much I connected my appearance to my femininity. And without it, not only did I feel insecure, but I often was conflicted with the idea that I was less than a woman.One Saturday afternoon I received a package from one of my best friends. Inside was a beautiful soft scarf. Playing with it was so new. The second I looked in the mirror everything changed. I felt beautiful and empowered to face the world. I wore that scarf every day whether it matched with my outfits or not. A week later my cousin and his wife surprised me with two more beautiful scarves. That made an even greater impact on how I faced the day- to -day reality of living with cancer. Having those three gifted scarves from the people I love, gave me courage and strength to become truly comfortable in my skin. It completely lifted my soul. At the same time, it felt as if I had been given the torch in the hardest relay race and it was my turn to finish it. It was finishing that race and conquering the fight, which inspired me to help other women walking the same path. I wanted to share the same joy and courage I felt when I received my scarves. The idea of spreading courage and lifting women's soul during their struggle with cancer was born after I completed treatment in October 2016. So, for my survivorship party, I asked guests to bring a scarf as a donation to pass on hope and courage on their behalf to women facing hair loss due to chemotherapy. My story opened the doors to spread the message of courage and strength at Advocate Illinois Masonic - Creticos Cancer Center, where I received care. Gifting scarves to led to the creation of Courage for the Soul in May 2017 with the mission to spread courage and strength one scarf at a time to women fighting cancer. All Ages, All Stages, and All Cancers.
