Satellite Head Hugger Groups List

Head Huggers is currently embarking on a new mission - one that has the purpose of providing more and more chemo caps to more areas around the country (and internationally too) ... encouraging regular volunteer-hat-makers to make and distribute Head Huggers chemo caps in their own localities - and to start up their own Head Huggers splinter groups.

We can post info about any splinter group on this list. While we won't be able to make a website or subsite for your group, we can link to any site you create, or we can just list contact info if you prefer.

Please contact us to have your volunteer group listed here.

New or Updated indicates groups updated or added in the past 90 days.
Hover over a NEW image for that listing's last update date.
The list is sorted by Country, then State/Region.
