The Infusion Center was thrilled, as the woman who had been making the hats had recently moved to Arizona! This project will be an ongoing partnership with the Cancer Center. At the presentation were the Greenville News, The Simpsonville Banner, Fox News and the CW News. Pictured (L to R) are club members: JoAnn Bachman, Amanda Walkup, Ronda Duncan, Joy Danigel, Tina Pringle, and Vonda Lawson.
