Sue organized Head Huggers to collect and distribute soft hats and chemo caps to patients experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy. Since the inception of her Charity in 2001 she has been able to distribute more than 6000 caps to those in need at oncology offices and chemotherapy sites, in more than 19 States.
She is still collecting and distributing hats and has also started Satellite Head Hugger Groups around the Country to help with the collection and distribution process. You can check for a local Head Hugger Group here: Satellite Head Hugger Groups List. Or, if you would like to start your own Satellite Head Hugger Group to help with the collection and distribution of these hats in your own local area, you can contact Sue here: Forming Satellite Head Hugger Groups.
To find out what type of hats Head Huggers accepts please read there Submission Guidelines. With each hat you submit you are asked to complete and attach the following information: Chemo Cap Submission Form. Head Huggers has a great list of free patterns available for you to crochet, knit or sew to make Chemo Caps, or hats for those who are experiencing hair loss due to burn wounds, brain surgery or other reasons.
