From Georgia to Colorado

I wanted to share this wonderful lady sent hats that she made from Georgia. I thought it was so thoughtful to send them here and I asked her to share her story.
Sara wrote the following:

I love to crochet, I like to make hats and scarves for various charities.  I decided to donate the chemo caps when my cousin was diagnosed with cancer and she was appreciative of the caps they gave the patients during chemo.  I did some digging around on the internet to find a good organization to donate some caps.  I found your site and decided to send them to you when I saw you were located in Colorado as that is where my cousin lives.

Wow, we have delivered over 4,000 hats since we started this chapter in 2012. What an amazing group of people from all over that have made chemo hats with so much love and passion. The wonderful Lavonna who always delivers them to our local Cancer Centers In Denver and the surrounding areas. I am truly grateful for everyone that is on this journey with me. The patients that receive these hats are very fortunate and they do appreciate what we all do. I know we are all touched by someone that has or had cancer in our lives and we only want them to be okay. Please share your story here and maybe it can help someone that is feeling the same way as you.

Much Love, Missy

Making A Difference Everyday

We received this letter from Hospice and I thought it was so kind. These people that work with Cancer Patients everyday are so incredible.  I know from going through it with my mom and dad what they went through.  There are so many people that help make a Cancer Patients life easier while they are going through treatments and after.  Thank you all for what you do!

Much Love, Missy

Why our hats that we make and donate make a difference

We received this letter from a a woman that is going through Chemo at one of the Cancer Centers.  It was so wonderful that with everything she is dealing with and fighting for she wrote us this card.  This means so much to all of us that all help with the making, donating and delivering of these beautiful hats.  Thank you!!



Georgeous Lap Blankets

A beautiful lady that found Rocky Mountain Headhuggers made these beautiful blankets to donate to the Cancer Center.  These blankets are so appreciated and the patients that are going through chemo use them during treatment.  It really really makes a difference!

A group from Windsor

We received a large donation of yarn from this wonderful group of women last week.  Below is a little about the group and a picture of Mary who has recently passed away and I am sure will be truly missed.  I have not met these lovely women but they seem like a very loving and caring group.



The group was started by Sonja West who taught knitting at the Windsor Recreation Center many years ago. We meet twice a month in each others homes for fellowship and to share projects and knitting tips. There are all levels of knitters in the group of about a dozen women. Mary Evans is the lady who passed. She was a happy and sweet person and she is greatly missed by all of us. I have included a picture of Mary with two of her grandchildren.

Thank you for the work you d...

Wonderful People

When I arrived home the other night that was a package on my doorstep.  When I opened it there were 15 amazing Chemo Hats that a wonderful lady named Rosy made.  These hats were so soft and they are being delivered to Rocky Mountain Cancer Center today!  I can't explain how wonderful these talented people who volunteer their time and talent are and every stitch they make creates a beautiful chemo hat.  Thank you everyone!!

Much Love, Missy

A Wonderful Surprise

Dear Elizabeth and Missy,

On behalf of the American Cancer Society, I want to thank the Rocky Mountain Head Huggers group for the generous donations to St. Anthony Hospital/Rocky Mountain Cancer Center & American Cancer Society Cancer Resource Center.  Your time and compassion for others does great things to ease the burden of cancer in our local communities.  We are grateful for the beautiful soft hats that can be offered to patients during this difficult time in their cancer journey. 

Do you have a mailing address that I might be able to send cards to? We want to be sure all those contributing in your group know how very much they are appreciated!  Please keep up the good work, and again, thank you for your dedication.

Warm regards,
