My name is Carisa. Welcome to Love Caps 4 Cancer a blog dedicated to making hats (mainly crochet, but knit and sewing are also welcomed) for Chemo Patients.
Earlier this year , my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer and with the expectation of hair lose due to Chemotherapy and/or radiation I decided to crochet a beanie for my dad. As I was crocheting a hat for my dad I thought it would be a great idea to make hats and donate them to organizations specially for Chemo patients. I found a number of places to donate crochet hats to, but did not find any that distribute locally (Bay Area, Ca). So, with that, I decided to do some research and ask local hospitals if they were interested in my donations. So far, Kaiser's Oncology department in Hayward has accepted my offer. I am in the process of asking other hospitals.
I am slowly working on forming a donation program in order to distribute Chemo hats for those who are in the fight against Cancer. This a personal way for me to help others who are in a similar situation as my family.
I will post more information as I continue to progress in this project.
