My name is Peggy, and several years ago, a friend of mine asked me to take care of her son, Jonathan, who was home from school with a migraine headache. Having suffered from migraines for many years, I understood his pain, and was focused on finding a way to help him heal. Working with what was available, I fashioned a cooling device, using ice, wrapped in cloth. While this definitely helped lessen his pain, it also started to melt, and soon became a wet and dripping mess! However, seeing Jonathan feeling better became my inspiration, and soon, I had an idea.
I designed and created a headband that could be used with ice, and asked my friends to try it when their children had a headache, or fever. Not only did it work extremely well, the kids also enjoyed wearing the headband. Expanding on this, I perfected the headband, adding animal characters to make it fun, and bring a “grin” back to the children’s faces.
It has been a long road, but the idea that stemmed from helping Jonathan relieve his headache, is now the Headgrin Headband!
