THE BATTLE CAP PROJECT
WELCOMES YOU

The Battle Cap Project is not currently accepting care kit request due to volume and the upcoming holidays. 

We will reopen Jan 1st 2023.

Mission: To help empower, inspire and encourage those battling cancer.
Vision: To make someone smile and feel special while going through a very difficult time in life.

A Battle Cap is designed to be worn inside and outside with comfort in mind. Not too big, and not too small, each hat is custom made just for YOU.

Making your Battle Cap a one of a kind creation. 

Using the softest yarn, vibrant colors and a very specific pattern created for the BCP, you'll find that your Battle Cap fits perfectly and looks as great as you.

ABOUT KURT

After losing his father to cancer in 2006, he’s been searching for a way to help others battling the disease.
After battling a substance use disorder for 10 years, he found his path to recovery while incarcerated. Learning to crochet in prison gave him a sense of purpose and newfound life skill to use for helping others.

He is 12 years in recovery to date.
In 2018 a friend requested a soft hat for her cousin who was battling cancer and thus The Battle Cap Project took form. He had found his calling and decided to create this free service for anyone fighting cancer. With the suggestion from his wife he decided to create care packages (Battle Kits).

To date, over 2000 Battle Caps and Battle Kits have been sent to over 22 countries and all 50 states. 
He now works as a  peer support specialist/supervisor in Madison, WI.  Working with people that have mental health and substance use disorders. 

He is a father to a wonderful and energetic (6 yr old) son, and married to an exceptional woman who is the love of his life.
