About The Love Scarf Project

The Love Scarf Project collects handmade scarves and caps to be distributed to men and women living with cancer at New York Presbyterian Hospital, City of Hope, and the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
"When my friend Robbie Seidman was being treated for leukemia at the City of Hope, he had visitors 24/7. But no one else in the ward did. Some patients almost never had visitors. So, it was particularly sad around the holidays. Many of the patients had come from very far away, and their families simply couldn't afford to come the long distance to visit them. When dealing with bone marrow transplants, particularly, and cancer treatments in general, the patients' body temperatures fluctuate a lot, and sometimes they get very, very cold. Can you imagine being almost inconsolably cold and lonely too? The Love Scarf Project was designed so that everyone would have something to make them feel warm and loved no matter what.”

-Bridget Fonger (Founder of the Love Scarf Project)

So, if you knit or crochet-- or you know someone that knits or crochets who would like to honor someone they have lost to cancer -- please have them raise their good needles (or hook) and joyously knit (or crochet)!
