Caring and Sharing

RAD Caps, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose members design and create caps made of hypoallergenic material for individuals undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments. These caps are distributed free of charge directly to those affected by chemo-related hair loss, to oncology departments of hospitals, and to cancer resource centers for further distribution to patients.

The organization was founded by a 15 year old who wanted to give back a lasting contribution to her community which she was leaving to attend college. Several of her classmates had family members with cancer and she thought that the caps would make this time more bearable and wearable. In this way she wanted to improve the lives of those touched by cancer.

Each cap is a one-of-a-kind. It is put into a clear gift bag and tied with a message of hope and support for the person who receives it. Most of the personal messages are still hand written by this young lady. Since 2010, over 1300 caps have been made and distributed. All monies received have been used for the purchasing of yarn and distribution of the caps. Any yarns donated are made in to the caps. All personnel associated with RAD Caps, Inc. are volunteers and there are no administrative costs.

We deeply appreciate the support given to us by Lion Brand Yarns. Their yarns are so soft. The yarn colors are vibrant and easy to mix and match. We look forward to our continued association.

Sincerely,
Dorothy G. Kutchera
C.O.O., RAD Caps, Inc.
