Chemo head scarf and t-shirt and how you can help kids with cancer

In November, my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer.
This is the same sister who not even 18 months ago became a young widow when her 40 year old husband passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.
We are separated by thousands of miles geographically.
I'm on the west coast, she's in the armpit of America Ohio.
Feeling like I wanted to do something to support her, 
I have been sewing head scarfs for her using this tutorial from Daydream Believers.

I also made her a t-shirt after her bi-lateral mastectomy.

Yes, They're Fake Sweatshirt
I wish I could do more to help her and support her,
but these are a few of the simple things that I can do to let her know I am pulling for her!
In just a few short weeks I will be joining my friend Paula as we sew pillowcases for kids with cancer.
If you are local {Seattle area} and want to join us, send me an e-mail so I can get you the details.
If you aren't local, but want to help in some way, you can follow this tutorial so that you can sew along with me to make pillowcases for kids with cancer.
Cancer sucks.
Let's take some time to support those friends and family members fighting for their lives.

You are so right, Cancer Sucks. I'm glad that you found the chemo-cap tutorial and I hope the caps bring your sister some peace. That shirt is awesome and is sure to bring her a smile.
Best,

I absolutely LOVE this head scarf. I was diagnosed in the fall with Breast Cancer and started chemo about 3 weeks ago. My hair just started to make it's exit and so I've been scouring the internet for something that looks a bit more funky then the typical chemo headwear. Thanks so much for posting this. I can't wait to get some fabric and give it a try.
