Meet the mother-daughter duo behind Thermaband
It's hard to imagine that even though half the population will likely experience a personal inferno that rages within as a hot flash at some point in their lives, the current solutions are so antiquated and undesirable. After being frustrated with my debilitating hot flashes, I decided to create a solution so that women no longer have to suffer in silence.
We deserve better!
