About Us

Heavenly Hats founder Anthony Leanna

“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 ™ 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
