Chemo Caps

knitted hat

Making hats for kids undergoing chemotherapy is a worthy cause that we can all contribute to. Hats are an easy and fun project to make, even for the beginner spinner. So, please, search through your stash, and spin, knit, crochet or sew a few hats for this endeavour.

Please, check with your local Cancer Society to see if hats are required in your area and the best place to send them. An example of someone working on this type of project is ChemoKids.

ChemoKids is seeking help from anyone with fiber related skills with our cause.

We are a non-profit organization that collects caps for children undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy for the
treatment of cancer or leukemia.

Because patients often loose their hair, they lose their self confidence. The caps offer an alternative to expensive wigs and also can help the children maintain good
health by keeping them warm and comfortable.

Presently, I handknit all of the caps that are donated, but I need help. Anyone willing to donate yarn, caps (handmade or store bought) or other supplies will be helping restore confidence and health
to a child in need. I am also requesting any knitting or crochet patterns for making caps, which can be put on the web site for others to use in their donations.

Sincerely,

Robin Burr

Founder of ChemoKids
