Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

The Chemo Cap Crew

We have a group of approximately 55 women, many of whom are employees of Reinhart Boerner Law Firm and some who are not employees of Reinhart, who either sew, knit or crochet chemo caps.

A few of our ladies also are thinking of crocheting or knitting afghans for women suffering through chemotherapy/radiation. The ladies who do the knitting/crocheting use 100% cotton knit yarn.

Thus far, we have sewed, knitted/crocheted 1,700 chemo caps since April 2002. The ladies donate their time after work and on weekends. Our law firm pays for all the fabric and sewing materials.

My advice to anyone out there who would like to do something like this, please do it. Women suffering through hair loss appreciate the caps very very much.

We have received hundreds of comments from the ladies who are recipients of our chemo caps.
