This morning I accompanied my friend Chris to her chemotherapy appointment, and we noticed a basket of knitted hats and scarves. They are free for patients undergoing chemo. They were beautiful, handmade items. They filled their corner of the room with color.
At least some of the items were donated by the "Kickin' the crap out of cancer organization." A tag on one of the hats explained that a woman, a cancer survivor since 2007, started the "ktcooc toque troop -- a growing group of family and friends who want to help in the battle against cancer, even if this means learning to knit."
It was a small, simple thing in many ways, but big in gesture. So thank you KTCOOC. You made a gray snowy day bright with spring.
