"I became involved with Happy Caps as I watched my Mom knitting Happy Caps even while she was undergoing chemo and radiation as a cancer patient herself - she said it made her happy and relaxed her. I wanted to help make a difference in the lives of cancer patients like her."
Help us make a difference!
Join us as a Volunteer and help us to make and deliver Happy Caps or help us by donating to support our "Cappers" with yarn and to help us grow and reach more patients.​

Meet our Volunteer Board

Every Happy Cap is tagged with a handwritten message from the volunteer "Capper" who lovingly made that hat! 
It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to make sure Happy Caps brings a smile to the faces of as many patients suffering hair loss as possible. We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.

​Happy Caps could not have gifted over 11,000 Happy Caps in such a short time without the generosity of our supporters and donors. We are so grateful! 

Our Founder

"I am a 6 year CANCER far. When I was sick, I was given a hat one day when I arrived for chemo. It was made  by a local person and there was a sweet note from her. It meant a lot to me and I have never forgotten that kindness."​
Kathi Mansfield
​Director: Patient and Infusion Center Relations
"I am the Manager of the Wellstar Kennestone Infusion Center. I see the pleasure our patients display when they are trying on Happy Caps, pick out THE ONE, read the handwritten card and then wear it with pride. That makes my day."

​​Our Happy Caps volunteers donate their time and talent to create unique, beautiful, super-soft  Happy Caps to make a difference in the lives of others in a difficult time.
