I’m a recipient of one of your caps because I am a cancer patient at the bone marrow & transplant clinic in San Antonio. My transplant process will begin on March 1st.
Many blessings to you & your volunteers,

You have always taken care of our campers very efficiently.  We have appreciated the opportunity to have campers help decorate as well.  They truly appreciate that people want to do things just for them.  The caps provide a psychological lift, but they also serve a practical purpose of protecting them from the July sun during camp.

Ms. Mamalakis received her blanket on the first day of her chemotherapy treatment.  As you can imagine, she was unsure of what was to happen, a little scared and fearing how she might react to the drugs.  The gift was something much more than a soft, warm blanket.  The gift represented comfort and care.  It demonstrated that she was not battling cancer alone. Ms. Mamalakis’ beautiful blanket covered her in warming comfort and compassionate love.

On behalf of Methodist Hospital, Psychosocial Oncology, we would like to thank you for your generous support of our adult and young adult cancer patients.  Your caps and the adult and children’s coloring books are a great diversion for our hospitalized cancer patients!  Thank you for all you do!
