Seven years ago, Andrew Taylor was diagnosed with brain cancer. Since then, he has survived brain surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, and now he’s found an inspirational way to help others who are fighting the same battle.
Andrew’s charity Hats on Heads provides empowering toques to cancer patients at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. Why are the toques so empowering? They have the words “Tough S.O.B.” printed backwards on the front to serve as a reminder that, when looking in the mirror, that person is, well, a tough S.O.B.
Hats on Heads launched in June 2018 and has raised enough money to give Tough S.O.B. toques on the heads of more than 1,000 cancer patients. The hope is to ultimately expand to other health care institutions across the city and country. For every toque and shirt sold through the online store, a toque is given to a Princess Margaret patient. The ultimate goal is to expand to more hospitals.
