This all started in the summer of 2007 when my dear friend Kathy heard about the need for chemo caps for breast cancer patients. Being very involved in the cause, Kathy jumped right in and volunteered to make some. She quickly recruited several friends. That is when things took off. We now have a group of people who knit, crochet, “Knifty Knit” and machine sew. And boy do they make caps! Our current count is over 16,000 and the caps are now available for all types of cancer patients.
We did learn a few things along the way:
1) All types of cancer patients need caps
2 ) Men really love them, too...so don't leave them out
3) Any size, any color, any style
4) One large chemo center can distribute 50 caps about 2 days
5) The need is endless (until they find a cure)
If you are interested in donating yarn or even completed caps, you can drop them off at:
