This past week my LYS held a special book signing event for the release of Annie's Attic Chemo Caps and Wraps. This all crochet pattern book features 29 patterns modeled by someone who is either a cancer survivor or has had a family member touched by the disease. Although the book has some wonderful patterns and beautiful color photographs, the best part of the book is that a portion of the proceeds from each book sold will be donated to Halos of Hope.
Although I have only known Halos of Hope founder and cancer survivor, Pam Haschke, for a short while, I am in awe of the work she has done. She took her personal experience and reached out to make life better for others. I suspect that the publicity generated by Pam's story (which is included in the book) will expand Halos network of volunteers around the country and they will continue to grow. Allowing them to meet their ever increasing requests for hats/caps. While I am only a small contributor, I am proud to be associated with such a wonderful organization and an amazing individual. Congratulations Pam!
