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.

It is such a Blessing how people find us and the incredible gifts they make for Cancer Patients.  I know their hearts and blessings go into every stitch they make and I hope they know what a difference they make in their lives.
Please send us your story of how you heard about us and what made you interested in Rocky Mountain Headhuggers and helping us make a difference.

You make such a difference and thank you so much!

Another Life Lost

Yesterday, my step sister Kim lost her life from Brain Cancer.  She was to young to die and left two beautiful daughters without a mother.  They have many memories to hold on to, but can never hug their mother again.  That is what breaks my heart. Everyone has a story to tell of  a family member, friend or neighbor that has lost their lives from the deadly monster we call Cancer.  Please try to remember that we are all in this fight together.

Much Love,
