Knitting hats to fundraise for Glioblastoma research.

My Dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma, a deadly brain cancer, in August 2017. That December I was stuck in bed after a hip reconstruction surgery and ended up knitted over 30 hats for my friends and family as holiday gifts. My Dad loved the hats so much that I gave him 2 for Christmas that year and he ended up stealing another one from me the following October. Although he put up one hell of a fight, my Dad lost his battle with cancer on February 5th, 2019. He kept his head warm after his brain surgeries with one of my knitted hats and he wore one every time he left the house. He would tell everyone he saw how warm my hats were.

As part of my grieving process, I have decided to knit more hats in honor of my father and donate the proceeds to the Glioblastoma Foundation. Very little is known about Glioblastoma Multiforme, including its causes and effective treatments. "The current standard of care (consisting of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy) is ineffective, and the median survival of a person diagnosed with glioblastoma is about 15 months; without treatment, it is a paltry 3-6 months. "

Because of the cutting edge research and the extensive network of doctors that my Dad had contact with, we were fortunate enough to have about a year of health with him. But not all families are as lucky as we were, and I want to help change that in any way possible. Watching and taking care of my father as his life came to an end was one of the toughest things I have ever had to face. It is not something I wish on any family, and that is why I am donating 50% of the proceeds from the sale of these hats to the Glioblastoma Foundation.
