Hats Off to Chemo - News - Oct 2000 'Hats Off will continue to exist as long as Cancer does' Tavistock, Ont, Community Guide, 1 Oct 2000 [cached]
"Anyone who has seen a friend or family member undergo chemotherapy understands the tremendous physical and emotional effects that accompany this type of treatment," says Tammy Burton, director and co-founder. "A new hat may seem like a small gesture, but it fulfills a practical need for people undergoing treatment and it serves as a demonstration of the care and concern of the greater community."
Some people wrongly believe that when the 20,000 hats goal is reached, Hats Off to Chemo will be nothing but a memory. But "it will exist as long as cancer does! declares Mrs. Burton from the Hats Off to Chemo head office at 36 Regent Street in Shakespeare, Ontario. "Or until chemotherapy is a thing of the past" adds her husband Les, who is a staunch supporter of his wife's project.
Hats Off to Chemo was founded in 1999 by Tammy Burton and Charlie Higgins, in honour of a friend who was diagnosed with cancer.
Tammy read an article in a magazine about a project being undertaken by an 11-year-old girl in Alabama and called her to ask if she could bring it to Canada. Tammy and Charlie were given the rights to promote it anywhere in the world and plans are already underway for similar projects in Britain and Australia.
Tammy is president of Symbidium, a special events consulting firm, and Charlie is the manager of technical support for Eastern District, Union Gas.
Tammy says they have been given straw hats, knitted hats, blossom caps, top hats, wide-brimmed hats and stetsons.
"Because Hats Off to Chemo doesn't campaign for funds, we rely on the support of companies like Union Gas and Sears Canada," says Tammy. "Partnering with these companies allows us to raise awareness of our charity, as well as distribute hats to adults and children undergoing chemo and radiation therapy."
Anyone interested in supporting Hats Off to Chemo can drop off hats at any of the Sears Catalogue, Retail and Furniture Stores across Ontario including Victorian Days and Nights here in Tavistock.
