We collect and donate handmade crocheted, knitted and sewed hats, shawls, arm pillows and other items for chemo patients. We will accept any item made for Men, Women, Adults, Teens, Children and Babies. Hats fend off the cold, as well as unwelcome stares. But, many cancer patients have a hard time finding hats that work. Hats sold at retail stores are often scratchy to bare skin because they are designed to be worn over a full head of hair. Handmade hats offer a varity of textures, colors, styles, sizes and patterns
Shawls offer warmth and a supportive hug to a cancer patient going through chemo treatments.
Arm pillows are comforting for those who have treatments that may take a few hours.

Approximately 650,000 Americans receive chemotherapy each year, according to the American Cancer Society. Many of these patients face the heart wrenching side effect of chemotherapy hair loss during treatments meant to help them recover"
