Nineteen year-old Anthony D. Leanna started the Heavenly Hats Foundation(TM) in 2001 when he was just 10 years old.
"My program was started to provide brand-new hats for cancer patients and other medical patients who lose their hair due to a disease or the treatment of a disease. Heavenly Hats(TM) wants to be able to provide hats to individuals and hospitals in order to help the patients feel better about themselves and to give them the extra courage and hope to win their fight. Hair loss during the battle of a disease can be uncomfortable, depressing and at times even a little humiliating. The hat is just a small symbol of hope and love, but my wish is that it will have the power to brighten the patients day so that they can look to the future with a smile." Anthony
(To date over 1,800,000 new hats have been donated free of charge to medical patients in need).
DeeAnn Leanna is the proud mother of founder Anthony Leanna and is the Executive Director of the Heavenly Hats Foundation.

**Hat packages may take up to four weeks to process due to the amount of requests that we receive on a daily basis. Our volunteers do their best to keep up with orders on a timely basis. Heavenly Hats(TM) has no paid employees so all hats are packaged by volunteers and we sometimes can get overwhelmed with orders which may delay delivery of packages slightly, please be patient and if you do not receive your "hat package" within 5 weeks please send us a note and we will be more than happy to check on the status of your order.
