The Fabric Patch of Ironwood . hopes to begin a grass roots effort within the community by recruiting as many people as possible to sew hats for patients undergoing chemotherapy. They are joining forces with Viking Sewing Machines Inc., by participating in a national drive to sew 100,000 caps during National Comfort- Cap Day. The caps will be donated to the American Cancer Society which, in turn, will give them to cancer patients either through the society's local offices or comprehensive and community cancer treatment centers. "These are more than just hats," says Arlene Wanink, Fabric Patch owner and a cancer survivor herself. "These are hope. They connect people to people in a unique way to say 'I care" and give many patients a reason to live for today." The American Cancer Society, welcomes what it terms a "generous offer of ComfortCaps from Viking Sewing Machines and its retailers." The caps will be used for cancer patients who are undergoing temporary hair loss due to chemotherapy and radiation treatments. "We know it is a difficult time for these patients, and they will certainly appreciate the time and efforts of the individual sewers," a society spokesperson said. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy face the prospect, in many cases, of losing their hair as well as their dignity. "You often feel embarrassed and depressed over your appearance and become reluctant to have visitors. .Also, without your hair, you are always terribly cold," says Wanink. Designed by a Minnesota milliner, these easy-to-sew hats help protect the patient's soft sensitive scalp which is subject to irritation and cold. Whether a novice or an expert sewer, one of these hats can be created in less than a half hour. "Something happens when people sit down to sew these hats. A rush of emotions brings forth a sharing or a healing as each person begins to reflect upon his or her own cancer-related life experiences," says Wanink. "Even more touching is the same feeling, the same waves of emotion, are experienced by the recipient." "As September is National Sewing Month, I can't think of a better way to put into action this year's theme: 'Each One, Teach One," says Wanink. "If every person whose life has been affected by cancer sews a cap and teaches someone to do the same, we'll far exceed our national goal." The Fabric Patch hopes National ComfortCap Day will encourage other organizations, sewing or non-sewing, to help support the awareness of cancer in any form by sponsoring a hat project in their communities. "Our goal is to help current cancer patients, to raise awareness, and to get people personally involved.. The rewards are immeasurable," Wanink says. The Fabric Patch is located at 121 N. Lowell St., Ironwood. To obtain information on participating in the ComfortCap Program, call the Fabric Patch at 9325260. Bunker receives degree from Xavier BESSEMER — Thomas Bunker, of 104 W.
