Hello wonderful supporters of HATS FOR ZOE and new friends. The day I emailed you about long ago has come and our website is launched. This amazing site was designed by my boyfriend, Matthew Carlson. To date we have raised $1755 for materials and shipping costs and collected over 300 hats! Contact with Vanderbilt has progressed and hats are being shipped next week, just in time for the holidays. We are doing good work! The variety we are able to offer these children is fantastic. We have Spider Man, Hello Kitty, Lightning Steve McQueen, Disney Princesses, assorted animal hats and wonderfully designed hats made out of tee shirt fabric and fleece. I will be traveling to Tennessee for the holiday and am looking forward to visiting the hospital and sharing pictures with you.
This is the only time I have not minded being cluttered in my Brooklyn apartment! Hats for Zoe has taken over!
Zoe has started a more intense chemotherapy. It is commonly called Consolidation Therapy which lasts approximately 8 weeks. She has been placed in the high risk category due to genetic testing on her bone marrow. Please continue to pray for her strength and spirit.
So many blessings have come from this diagnosis. Hats for Zoe is just one effort. Hiller Plumbing Heating and Cooling in TN installed an air filtration system, similar to the one in Vanderbilt Hospital, in my brother and sister's house for Zoe. All materials and labor were generously donated. The list of good work goes on and on. The display of grace and generosity are a testament to the wonderful people my brother Stephen and his wife Jacklyn are and to who you are. Thank you for all your continued support. We are doing important work.
More to come...
