Who they are: When Pamela Haschke underwent treatment for inflammatory breast cancer in 2004 and lost her hair, she was shocked at how painful it was. As the clumps fell out, her scalp twitched with pinpricks where hair used to be. The only relief was wearing soft, cozy caps and scarves that friends made for her. Two years later, at the inaugural Lance Armstrong Foundation LIVESTRONG summit she unveiled plans for her organization, which now provides free caps to cancer centers and individuals across the country.


 

How you can help: Knit, crochet or sew a soft cap in your spare time, or host a night when friends gather and create several (find patterns on the website or create your own). Mail finished hats to the organization’s headquarters for distribution, or drop off at participating yarn shops across the country.
