Blanket project makes hats for cancer patients

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Blanket Project has donated 33 hand knit and crocheted hats to Michelle's Place Cancer Resource Center's site in Fallbrook. These head coverings will be made available at no cost to clients of the center which serves those afflicted with any cancer. Michelle's Place offers application assistance and one-on-one support to help meet the needs of their clients.

They also have virtual and in person support groups, financial assistance programs and resources, monthly enrichment events as well as comfort items, such as hats, wigs, prosthesis, post-surgery chemo care kits and other care packages and more.

Diagnostic services such as mammograms are sponsored and discounted and transportation to medical appointments is available.

The Fallbrook Michelle's Place Center is located at the Fallbrook Regional Health District's Community Health & Wellness Center, 1636 East Mission Road, 951-249-7015.

Blankety project vice president Cathy Wick is a master crocheter and instructor who has crocheted nearly 100 hats for Michelle's Place. She began a knit/crochet group in coordination with the nonprofit Fallbrook Blanket Project in January 2015. The group has donated over 5,000 knitted and crocheted blankets, Afghans, hats and other items to Fallbrook and North County charities.

The Temecula Michelle's Place office has all the same services as the Fallbrook satellite office and is located at 41669 Winchester Road, Suite101, 951-699-5455.
