“The Heather Spoll No Hair Day Hat Program”
We proudly salute all of you caring and compassionate knitters who participate in this program hand knitting chemocaps for cancer patients. Because of all of you knitters here in the U.S. and in countries all over the world cancer patients of all ages from infants to seniors are feeling alot more comfortable wearing hand knit chemocaps.
We encourage each of you to knit one or two or a few chemocaps and donate them to a cancer treatment center in the area where you live. It’s neighbors helping neighbors one chemocap at a time and yes it does make a difference!
My daughter Heather (age 25 and a great knitter) passed away August 31, 2000.
In her memory we are knitting and donating hand knit chemo caps to wonderful hospital oncology inpatient units and hospice programs so that cancer patients who lose their hair can have a very soft hand knit cap to call their own to comfort their heads and their souls because they will know someone cared enough to knit a cap for them.
What can one say but thank you, which doesn’t seem quite enough, but all of you are helping to make a cancer patient in the oncology unit and hospice program feel more comfortable and comforted knowing that a knitter cared enough to hand knit a chemo cap for their head.
