Cancer & Treatment is frightening regardless of how old you are.
Making Happy Colored Hats & LapGhans for cancer patients is a small way of bringing some sunshine an comfort into the lives of both young and old.
In my book, those fighting cancer are hero's, they have no choice but to fight this desease.
You can bring a little sunshine into there lives by making some Happy Colored Hats (Lids For Kids) (or) LapGhans to show them that they're not forgotten or alone.
Please make your Happy Hats (or) LapGhans with Lively Colors to help lift their spirits, you may label them and share a little something about yourself if you'd like to as well.
They must be SOFT as their Heads & Bodies are sensitive from treatment.All Sizes will be greatly appreacheted.

Make a LapGhan: They may be knitted, crocheted, quilted, woven, cross-stitch... Blankets must be washable and in child friendly colors and patterns. Children come in all sizes so we welcome all sizes of blankets.
This is a lapghan that is made in panels and it works up so lovely, also if you add a tie to the top 2 corners they can tie it on the wheelchairs so they don't slip off
Dolls & Teddy Bears
Crochet (or) Knitted Dolls & Teddy Bears accepted for the children.These children need that feeling of a close friend durning this time, so were now thrilled to have dolls, Teddy Bears, or any Hand-Made Animal's. Many Patterns available on the innernet Free of charge
