May I Introduce Myself ...

My name is Margaret Louise Oldacre (Lou to my friends and family). I'm not used to talking about myself but felt I should let my beautiful, brave and resilient customers know a little about me.

My dear old Dad suffered from and recovered from Lung Cancer and my Mum suffered from Oesophageal Cancer and also recovered. They both lived to almost 90 years of age.

I have been in the business of manufacturing and selling Chemotherapy Headwear since 2005 ... that's 18 years, now.

Hat Show is my small business, based in Marion, South Australia, but also serving the world through my website (

For a few years, I made chemo caps for the Cancer Council Victoria's website and shops - until it became too much for me to handle, and I had to give up my position.

Now, in my late 70's, I am still working as a Sole Trader and loving my job and my customers.

I would appreciate receiving photos of you - if you have been or are a customer of Hat Show. Please send me a photo that I can add to my website. Also, if any of you who live locally, would like to model the Hat Show range of Chemo Headwear (even if you have hair again), please let me know. I would so love to have photos of real women (and men) on my website rather than mannequins.
