use our patterns to create chemocaps and Distribute them to your local hospitals
hand knitting caps for cancer patients since 2001
The Heather Spoll
" No Hair Day Hat Program"
My daughter Heather (age 25 and a great knitter) passed away August 31, 2000.
In her memory we are knitting and donating hand knit chemo caps to wonderful hospital oncology inpatient units and hospice programs so that cancer patients who lose their hair can have a very soft hand knit cap to call their own to comfort their heads and their souls because they will know someone cared enough to knit a cap for them.
What can one say but thank you, which doesn't seem quite enough, but all of you are helping to make a cancer patient in the oncology unit and hospice program feel more comfortable and comforted knowing that a knitter cared enough to hand knit a chemo cap for their head.
Children and woman undergoing chemotherapy or radiation for cancer all over the world would appreciate the this same program that is so successful in the United States.
You will need to be willing to donate some time to this project.
Second, make arrangements with your local hospitals and oncology units for the distribution of chemo caps to patients.
Be willing to have the chemo caps sent to you by knitters all over the world for distribution.
Finally, you need to take the time to thank those knitters who participate.
Remember all ChemoCaps must be hand knit or sewn caps are not acceptable for use by cancer patients.
I love to hear from you with any questions, suggestions, comments or thoughts that you may have regarding ChemoCaps.
