Members of the Republican Women of Kingman have donated hand-crafted crocheted caps to Kingman Regional Medical Center’s Cancer Center for patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
Nancy Moschcau, President of the Republican Women of Kingman, is a breast cancer survivor, and her inspiration for the caps came from her own experience. “I know what it’s like to lose your hair and endure the long treatments,” she says.
Moschcau, along with 3rd Vice President Jacque Hull and member Donna Mumford, created over 25 caps to relieve patients of chemotherapy suffering from hair loss. This act of generosity falls under the Club’s Caring for America Committee Project. Moschcau says the women wanted to “do something personal for the community to show cancer patients that our thoughts and prayers are with them.” They have additional projects planned to benefit cancer patients in the near future.
