I cannot even begin to tell you how overwhelmed I am by the support and giving hearts of you gals out there....NEVER in my WILDEST DREAMS could I have imagined the OUT POUR of LOVE from all of you!!!
My mail lady pulls up in her postal vehicle with more boxes from YOU!!!!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU BECCA for getting the ball rolling on HATS FOR AMY as I never knew what was going on until I talked with Mary today.
I received my first hat from Niki from Nostalgia at the Stone House and when I saw the hang tag on it that Becca designed (at that time I didn't know it) I thought that maybe Niki might be making hats and donating a portion to Breast Cancer Research. I HAD NO IDEA!!!! WHAT FUN THIS HAS BEEN!!!
As soon as I feel better (I am weak, tired, nauseated and crying a lot these past few days....I think the whole cancer thing is overwhelming me and making me mad that I can't do the things I want to do) I will post pictures of me in all of these FABULOUS AWESOME HATS!!!!
WHAT AN OVERWHELMING FEELING and YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT A GODSEND they have been. I am SOOOO COLD and SHIVERING all the time now that all my hair is gone that even in this heat of Iowa summertime, I still need to wear a hat. I even sleep in them!!!

Hi Amy,
So glad the cat is finally out of the bag!! I am sure you will be receiving lots of amazing headgear - can't wait to see your pretty face modelling them all!
(Well done to Becca for the fab idea.)

You are such an inspiration to ALL woman - I think about you every day - waiting to hear of your full recovery. (I must admit to feeling a little of a fraud for taking time-out for stress. If anyone should be doing so, it should be you!!) You are a truly amazing woman and I am humbled by your courage and determination to fight the awful thing that has happened to you.
I hope that you will be feeling much better very soon and that the hats that you receive go some way to help.
Take care Amy,
Niki x

When you received the first hat from Niki and called me I started to laugh and wanted to tell you what was going on.. Its wonderful to hear how pleased you are. Thanks Becca and all you wonderful Gals for a job well done!
Amy, I'm glad you were strong enough to post today. Hang in there!

Amy, I have already e-mailed you, but also wanted to post here on your blog, and say that I am so happy you are enjoying receiving all the lovely hats. Aren't our blogging friends the best?
You continue to inspire us all, and we are blessed to know you.
We will look forward to seeing the hats when you are feeling better. Until then, take care, my friend!
