More Comfort Caps Delivered to Cancer Treatment Center

We delivered 21 more comfort caps today.  The cancer treatment center got 11 and the radiation treatment center got 10.  In June, we delivered 25 caps to the cancer treatment center.  91 caps have been delivered since march!

There were only two cotton knit caps, like the stripe one, left from the original batch, so I went ahead and took in mostly polar fleece caps.  I've been told that the fleece caps are comfortable even in hot weather for those who go into cold air conditioning, or for wearing during the night. 

Lee and I took three caps to a friend last Monday, who has been newly diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer.  I let her choose what she wanted from about six different colors/styles.  She had just gotten her hair cut short, because it had started falling out after her initial chemo treatments.  We thought it would be good for her to have some caps available when the rest of her hair comes out.

I'm hoping to get some more of the cotton knit caps made and delivered during this hot season, and then we'll go back to making the polar fleece caps for colder weather.
