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,

Hannah Nein | Health Systems Manager, Hospitals

Donations are such a blessing!

The last few weeks have been full of surprises!

1.  Last week a Coworker gave us a huge bag of yarn to use to make Chemo Hats.  The colors and texture is perfect to make lots of hats.  Thank you Cathy!!!
2.  Then yesterday June from Arizona brought in 50 Chemo hats that she made.  This woman is remarkable she moved last year to Arizona.  She brings 50 hats 2 times a year for us to bring to the Cancer Centers and Hospitals. Thank you June!!!
3.  I received two very grateful emails yesterday from Patients that are going through Chemo and taking a new hat from the baskets that are at the Cancer Centers.  One was from Rocky Mountain Cancer Center in Longmont and the other from Lakewood.  This is why we do what we do!!! Please take a moment to read them.
4. Then of course Lavonna who is such a loving and giving person that delivers all these hats.  You are truly my Angel!!

Please send us your story whether it is you that has been through this or a friend or family member.  Your story might help someone else.

This shows how much Cancer has touched everyones lives. We can make a difference One Hat at a Time.

From A Breast Cancer Survivor

I am a breast cancer survivor and I saw an ad for HeadHuggers on our work website. I am excited to know that there is a program such as this. Hats are not cheap when you are fighting with cancer. I had some beautiful friends that donated hats to me during my journey. My mother and sister crochet hats, so I will definitely do what I can to donate some of these to your program. Julane Roberts

Feeling Blessed

I was driving in Longmont last week and saw a shop called Craft Talk Consignment. I went in and met the owner named Veronica and told her about Rocky Mountain Headhuggers and what we do.  She gave me a Huge box of yarn that people have donated.  I was so amazed and grateful.  This will definitely make a lot of hats!

Then yesterday a lady named June who moved to Arizona last year stopped in to my work.  She was in town visiting and delivered and made 70 Chemo Hats.  They are all beautiful! Again, I can't believe how lucky we are to have such wonderful women that put all their time and love into every hat they make.  

We are truly blessed!

Much Love, Missy

More donations make such a difference

I recently started knitting again after a very long hiatus and realized that I can only make so many things I would wear. One day a gal in my knitting group mentioned we could do hats for chemo patients and another gal posted the link to your website on facebook. I knew then I was sold: there was no better way to put my knitting to good use and make something that someone going through a hard time in their life could enjoy.
