We really do love hearing from BlowMeCool users and were so glad that our little mini fan, while it’s not designed to help cancer patients, we are pleased that it is helping some patients deal with hot flashes caused by cancer treatments.
This comes to us from one reader:
BlowMeCool is a work of genius. I’ve been using one because I’m getting hot flashes from the stuff they’ve injected into me to keep my cancer under control. However, being a guy, I’m not sure I want to always use something that’s been named to attract ladies. I think you should consider a rename for guys. It could be used by guys like me, reacting to meds, or by guys sweating out a football game, or guys sweating after running, etc. You could call the rename “Blow me Down” or some such thing. You might also consider a renaming for people who tend to sink into the depths of depression. You could call that one “Blow me Up” or some such thing. But maybe that would be going too far.
Thank you, Edwoe for sharing with us, and we are so glad that our fan is part of your life and making you a little more comfortable in your battle. We wish you well.
That “certain time of life” for women is aggravating. As my body began to adjust to the new realities of getting older (and I think wiser), I found myself annoyed to be the only person in a room to experience a full body heat wave.
It is not always feasible to remove multiple layers of clothing to adjust to the rush of heat coursing through my veins; yet, during hot flashes I need cooling. Fanning the air using anything within reach does help – sort of. The problem is that it is too obvious to anyone around what I am experiencing (nothing subtle about my hot flashes)!
It’s not as if I have a lot of control over my menopausal hot flashes; nor, do I want to demonstrate that I am experiencing hot flashes. After all ladies, when we reach a certain age, hot flashes can become a common occurrence; and, we certainly don’t want to advertise that we have reached that age – especially in the very competitive job world we have today!
At times, I feel trapped in my own little hot flash hell. Although, it is somewhat comforting to know that I’m not alone. Statistics indicate that 50 million women in North America are in the peri-menopause or full menopause stage of life.
At times, I almost embrace the idea of getting older so I can grow out of this menopause phase – but, that’s crazy thinking. Fortunately, I discovered a very quiet, discreet, compact little fan that helps me instantly relieve hot flashes as soon as they begin. With my BlowMeCool mini-fan, I can manage hot flashes with some style – I prefer grace under pressure.
I keep my BlowMeCool mini fan under my pillow so when I’m wakened by night sweats, soothing air is immediately available. It’s not a perfect solution, but it’s better than separate bedrooms – at least for now.

Stress triggers my hot flashes more than anything. So … Christmas shopping crowds, family demands, and trying to be nice often makes me into a real drip. The BlowMeCool sign in the window invited me to buy a gift, so I did – for myself, and I’m glad I did. Now my stress induced flashy outbreaks are more bearable because I can share them with my “friendly little BlowMeCool fan”. – Rita, Ottawa
