March 30, 1949 – March 5, 2014
Pam was the co-founder and inspiration behind Crochet for Cancer, Inc. She was diagnosed with stage 3A uterine cancer in October, 2011. After beginning chemotherapy treatment, she made herself several crochet caps similar to ones she had received from a non-profit near her home in northern Indiana. Someone had donated caps to the organization (Riverbend Cancer Services) and Pam had been blessed to receive a few. It was at this moment that she and her daughter Tracy felt the Lord telling them to give back and help others like Pam was helped. During her treatments, Pam and Tracy began to crochet caps to donate to the infusion center and would place an uplifting scripture on each one. Since that day, Crochet for Cancer, Inc. has grown by leaps and bounds inspiring ladies from around the world to donate caps to their local hospitals and oncology offices. Crochet for Cancer, Inc. has now partnered with numerous cancer centers and founded several chapters throughout the US & Canada.
Pam began her new victorious life in heaven on March 5, 2014. Her legacy is continuing through each handmade item that is donated to a cancer fighter.
