We all have stress and over time if it is not controlled can lead to health issues. I have found knitting one of my stress relief items.
When I started Passing the Hat I learned a lot about cancer patients. I wanted to give them something to do while being infused. Over time I have learned it helps them not stress over what is going on, it gives them something to do and by the time their chemo session is over a hat has been made.
Looming a hat has helped because, it is easy for dexterity and easy on the brain for those who get chemo brain. By the time your session is over you can have a hat made and hand it to the person sitting next to you.
The Passing the Hat program has been around since March 2011 and we have many cancer patients who have learned to loom. We have many survivors who want to give back and supporters who just like to help out.
If you are interested in helping out email me and I can get you started.
