Chemo Caps are needed for adult men and women.

We are always on the look-out for donated knit or crocheted caps for our chemotherapy patients. Gifting caps made from yarn is a great way to share your talent and generosity with others. Involve your neighbors, church group, club, or start your own Chemo Cap Koffee Klatch! It’s fun! It’s worthwhile! It’ll make you feel GREAT!!
