Knitting For Cancer

We are a non-profit organization that knit hats & blankets for cancer patients. We use only the softest yarn on the market because the cancer treatment leaves patients with severely sensitive skin and a constant feeling of being cold. Help us change this!

The inspiration for Knitting for Cancer came from my mother, who was battling cancer. My mother passed April 26th, 2016. Her love and spirit lives on through me. I understand, there are many families dealing with the same situation, this is why I started Knitting for Cancer.

Knitting Warriors and Other Events

Have fun learning how to knit, using a loom provided by Leanne McMillan. Learn new patterns while socializing and meeting new people. Any and all skill levels are welcome, we encourage people with no knitting experience to come and learn.

Our Mission

This organization was inspired by my late mother Linda Coffman. I started knitting for cancer to give back to those who suffer from cancer like my mother. There is no shortage of people battling cancer that deal with constant pain brought on by the radiation treatments and chemotherapy. Patients are often left with chills and sensitive skin. Knitted hats and blankets are the best way to keep cancer patients warm while enduring their treatment in cold hospital rooms. Please, help us provide a simple solution to a heartbreaking problem.

(Every little bit helps, even a dollar)
