Lids with Love providing hats and scarves to East Texas cancer patients

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Robyn Green was sitting in one of these salon chairs when she witnessed a hair appointment that prompted her to start a campaign of giving.

 "Thinking about how society is about looks and things and how hard that had to have been for her to sit there and her hair was coming out," said Green

About a month ago at city limits barber and style shop Green says a cancer patient was at the salon and her hair was coming out in handfuls.

 "It was very sad to watch her go through that and be so strong," said Bennie Reneau, Hair Stylist, City Limits.

Green said she left the salon that day with the woman on her mind and began to brainstorm what she could do to help.

 "My heart felt like it was telling me I needed to do something," said Green.

And that something was Lids with Love, a charity collecting hats, scarves and bandanas for those who have lost their hair due to cancer or other diseases.

Green says the charity isn't just about collecting donations but about spreading love to those who need it.

Along with a hat or scarf recipients will also receive words of hope and encouragement from all who donate.

Hairstylist Bennie Renueau says she knows first hard what impact each donation will have, she shaved her head five years ago after a brain aneurism and five brain surgeries.

 "I chose to shave my head, people with cancer and going through radiation and chemo and losing their hair they really don't have that option. Whatever little bit we can do is huge in their lives," said Reneau.

And after witnessing the bravery of a complete stranger Green believes everyone can step up and support.

"There is nobody that's not impacted by cancer you either have a loved one or a friend or know someone," said Green.

You can drop off donations to lids with love a Lufkin Middle School, City Limits Barber and Style Shop and Central High School.

For more information on how to donate of receive at hat or scarf contact Robyn Green at the Lufkin Middle School.
