Knitting Hats for Chemo Patients

I am Emily Cranston and I attend Immaculata Academy in Hamburg, New York.

This year as a sophomore I was elected as President of the Franciscan Club, which is our school's youth group. For a community service project I taught nine girls how to knit. Our goal was to knit chemo hats for patients at Roswell Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York.

One of the hats we made looked like real hair and was made from Lion Brand's Fun Fur yarn. Three months after begining I had the priviledge of delivering about twenty hats to the wig center at the hospital.

Our moderator, Deacon Robb Ciezki, blessed the hats and they were delivered with rosaries and our prayers.
