FanU is a family business set up by Adele and daughter Jodi. Jodi was sadly diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 25 and suffered with hot flushes as a chemotherapy side effect. Adele was simultaneously going through menopause and struggling herself with hot flushes due to hormonal changes. There were no fans on the market that seemed adequate… they were all bulky or unattractive with short battery life. As a result Adele spent time sourcing a great fan and after some consideration, FanU was born!
FanU became very popular, very quickly! As well as being used by those suffering with hot flushes, we have hand-delivered FanU wedding favours, personalised teachers’ gifts at the end of term and provided cool relief for those lazing by the pool in hot countries. That’s the appeal of FanU – everyone needs to cool down from time to time!
As Jodi thankfully made a full recovery thanks to treatment, it seemed only right to donate some of the FanU profits to the wonderful charity that is Breast Cancer Now. FanU were delighted and honoured to be presented with an award in 2018 by Breast Cancer Now for the most innovative use of fundraising!
We’ve developed a range of handheld fans suitable for a range of different tastes and budgets. Adorn your fan with your name, initials, or even Swarovski crystals!
