Chemo Caps
Created By: Jan Goble

Vivian and I were having tea with Joyce, our friend who had gone through chemotherapy, her hair growing back nicely. We were sitting at the Allen Senior Recreation Center in Allen TX. Vivian and I were knitting. Joyce told us that when she was undergoing chemo, she had a cap to wear to bed after she lost her hair. She said that the seams were kind of painful when she slept in it. She said that the caps helped because the skin is so tender after the hair loss. Vivian went home and looked up chemo caps on the internet. She found a website with patterns for knitting and crocheting. A few days later, she brought the patterns in. We were so excited to see that we could do something to help those that would need the caps. So we started to knit and crochet. We knew that we needed really soft yarn and we found the Lion Brand yard at the Hobby Lobby store. Others at the center asked what we were doing. They wanted to join our little group. Two weeks later we had 30 hats. We brought them to the McKinney Cancer Center in McKinney TX. They were thrilled to see the different colors and patterns of the caps. There wasn't anyone in the reception area when four of us brought the caps there. Two women came in and had their caps on. When we showed them the caps we brought, they were really excited about them and each picked a cap out. They replaced their caps with the new ones. It was so nice to see the smiles on their faces. One of the ladies had the same situation with her cancer that Joyce did and Joyce was able to share how well she has done since then. The pictures we took showed the smiles on, we who could give and those that benefited from our caps. We are going to continue to make the caps and bring them to the cancer center. We were so humbled by the experience and found something that we can do for others to make their day a little brighter. One never knows when she may be in the same situation.
