This hat was worn by an amazing woman:

                Pat Courcelles
She was diagnosed with Gliobastoma Multiforme in May 2009. Mom courageously underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy in order to fight against this invading tumour. Tragically, she lost her battle on September 20th, 2010.
Throughout the 16 months after her diagnosis, she maintained hope that she’d be able to live a normal life, doing all the things she loved to do: spending time with family and friends and simply enjoying life to the fullest. She never missed the opportunity to tell us just how much we meant to her. She leaves us with an abundance of beautiful memories and her warm and contagious smile is forever engraved in our hearts. We miss you so much.
Amour toujours,
Your loving family
