No Title

Actually I do not do this for any particular organization. I am a volunteer at Univ of California San Francisco Medical Center. My specific unit I volunteer on is the hematology/stem cell transplant unit. As one who is a leukemia survivor I know what these patients are going through. Often my internal thermostat was out of whack and a cozy cap was what was needed to keep me warm. So I began knitting or crocheting hats for patients on the unit. I use Vanna's Choices because the yarn is soft and comfortable. I visit with patients weekly and provide hats. If there is not a particular color that catches a patient's fancy, I will take their order and bring to them the following week. I try to use vibrant colors which definitely provides a spark to an otherwise dull beige room. By knitting or crocheting hats, this is my way of "paying forward". Without UCSF I am not sure I would be alive today. It is my way of giving thanks.
