Over My Head was opened in 1998 in Upper Arlington as a beautiful space to help women look and feel a little
more normal when they need it the most. Bethany Golden purchased Over My Head in January 2007 after being
inspired by her mother, Bonnie Ritchie, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2002. The boutique has evolved
tremendously and is now located in The Bing Cancer Center at Riverside Hospital. Bethany continues the same
tradition of excellence of headwear and has added Rachel Brown, CFm to her team of post-cancer specialists.

The ladies at Over My Head pride themselves in carrying the newest and best technology in hair alternatives,
post-breast surgical products and fashionable yet functional merchandise. They offer a licensed salon room in which
volunteer barbers or cosmetologists can provide head shaving services. Over My Head works very closely with many
surgeons and oncology offices in order to achieve the best benefits for their patients. The boutique is a Medicare
certified, American Board of Certification accredited facility and network contracted with all major medical
insurance companies.
