Her note reads:

Thank you for providing a thread of life to tie on to in the quest for touching hearts and hands in the struggle to battle all diseases.  It takes a village and your blog provides for reaching so many.  I am thankful to share stitches of love to warm, cover and bless precious life.

Her note is perfect and words are so inspirational!

It’s Been A While

Hello there!  I know– I know, it has been a while since we posted.  And I am sorry.  But the Great News is:  You have still been steadily sending in contributions to keep Knitting Rays of Hope going…   Thank you for your steadfast commitment to spreading hope!

We have about 6 boxes that we have received that we have not blogged about yet.  And we have about 10 boxes of hats to label and send to our local NICU’s and Oncology Centers.

Recently, Lynda from Massachusetts sent us 33 skeins of yarn.yarn skeins

Thank you so much!  We greatly appreciate your generosity!

Enjoy your day!

A Special Delivery: Love In Action

In honor of his auntie, my son took in 19 adult hats for chemo warriors to the Oncology Unit that Wanda would get her chemotherapy during her battle with Pancreatic Cancer.

19 Adult Chemo Hats

Wanda passed on 12/27 five years ago, but it seems like yesterday.  It’s always a difficult day around here, and as we fought the tears back, we decided to push through, be strong and do things that she loved.  One of the things Wanda loved to do, was bringing in hats for chemo warriors.  I had just started learning how to loom knit and the hats I made were unquestionably “unique”, but Wanda would always be so kind and encouraging.  And the PR piece was almost always her– I was embarrassed – even with this blog as it sometimes seemed like we were bragging or tooting our own horn.  But she would ask- how can you raise awareness or make changes if nobody knows?  In her kind, patient but firm nature, Wanda pushed me to improve my hat making skills and to grow Knitting Rays of Hope.

Bryan-Delivery

Bryan took in chemo hats for adult chemo warriors at Kaiser in Ontario.

And with this last delivery for 2017, we are proud to say we have delivered 6,118 hats to chemo warriors and babies in the NICU!  We are so grateful for your continued support and generosity!  Thank you for making this world better and for spreading love and hope!

Thank you!
