- Hats: Heavenly Hats was started by 10-year-old Anthony D. Leanna to provide FREE brand-new hats for cancer patients who lose their hair “to help the patients feel better about themselves and to give them the extra courage and hope to win their fight.” The hats are just a small symbol of hope and love, but, he says, “my wish is that it will have the power to brighten the patient’s day so that they can look to the future with a smile.” You can request one from a variety of choices including lightweight spring hats, wool ones, beanies and baseball caps.
