Bill Stum - Knit for the Cure

This is a story about a man's love for his wife and why he is motivated to Knit for the Cure.

Bill's wife, Peggy, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 and after having a mastectomy of her left breast, she remained cancer-free for four years. It returned in 2006 and this time it returned with a vengeance. Sadly, Peggy lost her life on November 2, 2009.

Bill started to make knitted hats during the last six months while Peggy was at home.  From the time she came home until she passed away, Bill made close to 1050 hats. He did so in her honor.  He told her that every stitch he made was a prayer said for her. Now that she has passed away, Bill continues to make hats for cancer patients and survivors.

We hope you'll join him in knitting for the cure.
