Neurology Hats - "Keesha's Project"
courtesy of cutecolors
When we make chemo/cancer caps, we don't
realize there are others out there who have their heads shaved for
surgeries who would love a pretty hat to wear while their hair grows
back. All sizes are needed from childrens to adult. One thing to
keep in mind is that we need to make these hats a little larger than
the chemo caps as surgery patients usually have stitches and some
swelling from surgery.
If you need first hand info on the best hats to make, please email KEESHA
be sure to visit her blog:

I think it would
be lovely to have caps made by your group. We do neurosurgery on all
ages of patients (pediatric to adult) and have a
service. We probably use about 5-10/week on the adult service and maybe
half that on the pediatric service.

I spoke to the
Rehab Operations group regarding your donation and we do feel we have some
patients who could use the caps. We'd like to take small shipment
to start with and see how it goes. Again, thank you.

Another hospital that is in desperate need (of neuro
caps)... is where I go every two weeks as a patient. It is a
new neurological institute at the hospital (there is an entirely
separate hospital building)."
