'So happy to see you continue this great work'

In late September, HealthEast Cancer Care at St John’s Hospital received a yarn donation and thought of us. (Thanks, Janine for picking it up!) A month later, on Nov. 4, 2016, we dropped off 100 hats.

"Thank you for the wonderful hats you brought to HealthEast Cancer Care today. It makes me so happy to see all of you and to see you continue this great work!" said Beth Forristall,
Cancer Care Navigator.

As happens so often, when we dropped off the bags of items, other staff members came over to check out what was happening. "These are all so individual!" one woman praised. "That's so cute!" another said as she held up a hat. "I love the ones with the pom-poms on tops!"
And our favorite comment: "The patients are going to love these." 

As usual, we had a variety of not just colors but sizes in the box, and the women who looked through them were glad to see some that will fit smaller-sized ladies heads. "We have a lot of Asian women who are very petite," explained a staff member. Those hats will be perfect for them. 

We have donated a few times to St. John's, including in June 2015 and April 2013. Click here to view more about our past donations and learn more about the cancer treatment program at St. John's.
