In October 2015, Anthony worked with a group of amazingly talented women who crocheted him soft tiaras to send to children fighting cancer through Ellie’s Hats. Since many children undergoing chemo lose their hair, plastic tiaras can be uncomfortable to their sensitive heads. With the help of his good friend, Linda Joyce, Anthony was able to deliver homemade tiaras crocheted with soft yarn held together by an elastic headband.
Ellie’s Hats donates hats and other needed items to children battling cancer. When Anthony was first diagnosed with his brain tumor, Ellie’s Hats sent him an awesome Boston Red Sox knitted hat. That Christmas, they also sent Anthony a package to bring a smile to him face. To show our appreciation, we always make an effort to support those who made Anthony’s most difficult time a little easier. Anthony is always excited to give back to Ellie’s Hats after all they did for him.
