Back in the early days of Peter’s diagnosis and treatment he (with my help) became a total hat baby. Partly because his little baldhead needed protection from the cold months in New York City or the bright sunshine in the fields at home and partly because I wanted him to look healthy and cute unlike the sick little chemo-baby he really was. Either way he totally rocked his hats and Dennis, kindly, indulged me in the occasional hat-shopping spree. The extra boost of personality Peter got from a good-looking hat was pure joy for me; he knew the buying sprees would be short lived with a zero percent chance of survival.
Many kids and young adults need to emotionally detach from their disease, treatments and the ensuing side effects like hair loss. Taking a stylish shelter from their disease for emotional survival as well as protect their bean from the elements is often necessary. A healthy hat budget can be as illusive as a healthy child during treatment. When I explained this need to the kind folks at The Blue Berry Hill, Salt Lake City, UT they immediately understood and were willing to help. We’re so pleased to announce our relationship with this fun company!

Sometimes a little thing can make a big difference in the life of a child with cancer.
