Brownwood volunteers knit hats for cancer patients

BROWNWOOD, Texas - Every second Tuesday of the month a group of women in Brownwood volunteer their time to knit hats for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

They meet at the Coggin Avenue Baptist Church Connection Center from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Mary Cathrine Adams began the group after her sister went through chemo to treat her breast cancer. She lost her hair permanently in the process.

Adams said they began the group in October and have knitted 100 hats so far.

"It's important on the right now and right here basis to help those in need ... paying it forward," she said Tuesday. "Hopefully our ministry grows and it sprouts."

Their hats have gone to Texas Oncology located in Dallas and the Walker Cancer Center in Brownwood.

 

Volunteers are welcomed to attend the knitting session, and Adams said she'll even teach them how to knit.
