Knitting chemo caps for the cancer hospital

In 2006 my friend was diagnosed with liver cancer and took chemo. I called to see how she was doing and she said she had lost her hair. They gave her a wig but it was tight and bothered her. I got on the internet and found Lion Brand Fancy fur pattern for chemo caps,downloaded it and made one and sent it to her. She loved it so much she even wore it to bed! I made her another one in a different color. She was so pleased. I decided that if it made her happy, I would make some for our cancer center here. I took several to them and they were delighted. Since then I have made and donated over 1500 caps. My friends and family know I make them and whenever they know someone who needs one they tell me and I make a cap for them. It is so gratifying to me to know I am making someone who is sick feel a little better.
