Compassionhat spreading love one hat at a time πŸ’•

Another one of the special ladies who helps us behind the scenes, is Sue Richards - the founder of CompassionHat, who provides us with beautiful caps for our chemotherapy patients as well as scrub caps for our doctors & nurses for our catch-up lists. We asked Sue to share her remarkable story with us - you can read it below ✨

β€œIn 2012 my younger sister, Yolanda was diagnosed with acute leukaemia. She started chemotherapy the day after her diagnosis, with no time to prepare. All her hair fell out right after the first 5-day cycle of chemo. This was much sooner than she had expected and added additional stress on top of everything else she was dealing with. She sent me a photo of herself with a scarf wrapped around her head, looking so sad.

Yolanda lived in Australia, and I decided to fly out to be with her for the second course of chemo and began looking for some head wear to take along. I couldn’t find anything suitable in South Africa but was amazed at the number of international products I found, and at how beautiful these hats were. My sister was very grateful for these hats because they gave her back her dignity. Having soft feminine head wear allowed her to face her family and friends again with confidence.

After that visit I began thinking about all the women in South Africa who are affected by cancer and chemo-induced hair loss and what a struggle it must be to find suitable, comfortable headwear while you are feeling sick as well as emotionally and physically drained. I wanted to get involved and make a difference to these women and I started Compassionhat where we design and manufacture unique head wear that fits heads with little or no hair, to be worn inside or outside the house, instead of a wig.

Yolanda sadly passed away in 2015 and in her memory I started a project, donating 1 sleep cap to a lady in need of some compassion, for every confirmed order I receive via my online store as this is exactly the type of thing she would have done. While looking for causes to donate these hats to I came across Project Flamingo, made contact with them, and now regularly donate hats to them. The oncology sisters at the hospitals where Project Flamingo is involved are tasked with handing out the hats and I believe this interaction present a unique opportunity to connect, speak with and comfort somebody who might just be in need of compassion and care on that day.

My little factory also manufactures and subsidize theatre caps for Project Flamingo from time to time. I either donate the fabric or the manufacturing fee of the theatre caps. It makes me happy to know that my small business plays a role in the success of this amazing initiative and helps to restore dignity in many deserving women.”

Do you have fabric you can donate to support our Journey Bag project?

We are asking our friends and supporters to look in their closets for lengths of fabric that we can use to make our bags. We need 1m - 1.5m of fabric to make one of our journey bags.

We all know someone who loves to sew and has a few sheets of fabric in the closet that they do not plan on using anytime soon.

Our goal is to make as many Journey Bags as possible during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please support us by donating fabric and spreading the word.πŸŽ—οΈ

Contact Liesl Basson at email [email protected] or mobile +27 83 460 3544 if you would like to contribute to this cause.
