Caps For Chemo
The Charity That We Donate To:
Knots of Love - www.knotsoflove.org
About The Charity:
Knots of Love donates caps to: Men and women undergoing Chemotherapy, burn victims, brain surgery patients, head trauma patients, and individuals with Alopecia.
What Knots of Love provides and how we make a difference:
Warmth: Caps help keep patients warm in the chilly treatment rooms.
Comfort: Heads become sore after a long day of wearing a wig, and some chemotherapy drugs cause heads to become tender. Caps provide respite and comfort, like a cozy pair of slippers or a soft robe.
Dignity: The loss of hair can be traumatic for patients, resulting in embarrassment and seclusion. Caps provide a fashionable way to cover hair loss and help to restore self-esteem.
Knots of Love Facts:
The mission at Knots of Love is to warm the hearts and heads of those experiencing traumatic hair loss by knitting and crocheting caps with love. These beanies are delivered free of charge to patients across the country. We hope for a day when our services will no longer be needed, but until then our recipients continually tell us that our beanies not only provide warmth as they go through treatment but also provide them an incredible amount of dignity during the most challenging time of their lives.
