This organization was founded by a teenager, Taylor DeVries, who recognized a need in our area to provide hats to patients who need head warmth. Most of the knitting is done by Taylor, her mom and neighbors, so you can see she needs help.
For a list of the medical organizations and offices that have already received her hats. visit her blog at http://tete-a-tete-hats.blogspot.com.
Note from Taylor,
The vast majority of the requests that I receive are for womens' hats for ladies with breast or ovarian cancer. I also send hats to numerous hospitals and doctors' offices that deal with children and premature babies, so I can always use those too. As for the yarn, anything soft with no wool content is best. As I understand it, the heads of chemo patients are extremely sensitive. People wear the hats during the day, but they also tend to sleep in them. There are some wonderful resources online for chemo cap patterns. I have found the most popular to be this one: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt18.htm , however any of the patterns found at headhuggers.com are great. They do have crochet patterns as well.
