Maryland girl helps make hats for kids with cancer

[anvplayer video=”5156388″ station=”998132″]

After dealing with her own case of juvenile arthritis, a Maryland girl decided to spread joy to others fighting cancer by making and giving out hats.

Kaylee Milano, 9, hopes it will bring joy to sick children.

She understands what it means to be sick but not know why – spending lots of time in the hospital herself – missing most of the second grade.

Kaylee’s arthritis makes it difficult to use crochet needles, so she uses a loom instead for dexterity. However, she and her mom Amanda aren’t the only ones making hats. Donations are coming in from near and far.

The Milano‚Äôs are hoping to make monthly donations to children’s cancer centers beginning this month.
