Youth spend day off school to sew some ‘chemo caps’

Gail Parsons • Reflector-Chronicle

Fiona Tokach threads a needle on her sewing machine Monday morning at Sterl Hall where she and several of her friends got together to sew chemo caps for cancer patients. Fiona started the Fifth H SPIN club for youth who like to sew.

Abilene students had many choices of how to spend their day off school on Monday, including sleeping in. But, Fiona Tokach, 16, and her friends had another idea. They arrived at Sterl Hall bright and early to sew chemo caps for cancer patients.

Fiona first sewed chemo caps for her aunt’s sister-in-law, who had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Once she learned how easy it was to make them, she made so many her relative had to finally tell her she had enough.
