The Lion Brand Yarn Company is proud to be a Gold Sponsor of Cast Off Chemo!

Comprised of yarn industry professionals, the organization operates on the belief that a cure for cancer is one of the most important goals in medicine. With the understanding that it's a disease that affects all of us - our family, our friends, our customers, our sisters in knit and crochet - Cast Off Chemo is asking that yarn lovers of the world unite to beat chemo - and cancer!

How? Well, by supporting the research of Dr. David Krag and his team at the Breast Cancer Center at the University of Vermont Medical Center. By developing new treatments for patients with breast cancer by using their own immune system, Dr. Krag's team believes this treatment could end the need for chemotherapy.

There are several ways to support this research:

  • Buy a pattern. -- For just $5, you can buy one of many beautiful patterns donated by popular designers like Cari Clement and Diane Moyer.
  • Make a one-time donation. -- Cast Off Chemo accepts donations through their association with SD Ireland Cancer Research Fund.
  • Host a fundraising event for shops and knit-crochet groups in your area. -- Cast Off Chemo has put together over a dozen ways that you could host a fundraiser. Ideas include stitch-n-sip parties, encouraging local yarn shops to donate a portion of yarn sales for a day, offering classes for a donation, and more.

Whatever option you choose, your support will benefit over a million women and men world-wide by bringing Dr. Krag's research to clinical trials.
