I remember one of those glimpses 10 1/2 years ago that lingered. And although I had a smile on the outside, a knot was forming on the inside all because of seeing a hat in that glimpse. One of my players’ moms was wearing a hat. It wasn’t cold out that day yet she wore a hat. Two months later another mom came to practice wearing a hat. Both of those women wore those hats to cover their thinning hair from chemotherapy treatments. And in that second moment, while my heart questioned, “what was going on?” my mind was made up that if I could ever find a way to create something that could show my support and appreciation for the mothers in our club fighting breast cancer, I would do it.
