Spreading Rays of Hope…a hat at a time

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We are very appreciative of Nancy and her friends (Kathy, Jenny, Bridget and Candace) for loom knitting the hats above to contribute in our December’s shipment.  Nancy has been very supportive in her efforts to make hats, but also in recruiting friends and co-workers to Team Knitting Rays of Hope and most recently, she has been able to create a lot of PR for our cause!  We are so appreciative of everyone who supports and helps us spread hope.  We realize that during this time of year, between holiday parties to shopping and decorating, things can get chaotic.  We are very thankful for all the contributions we receive and know that they will make a difference to the patients and their families.

Nancy shared an encounter she recently had while purchasing yarn at a craft store.  She tells us that a lady behind her, overheard her saying that she was making hats for children who are fighting cancer.  The lady thanked Nancy for her hats, as she had a young son who was in the hospital many times and how much he enjoyed picking out a special hat every visit.

I think it’s great inspiration when we hear how our creations help make a chemo warrior smile!  Doesn’t it make you just want to knit a million more?
