Morrie with Loom-Fox 17

Morrie Boogart isn’t letting anything stand in his way of helping those less fortunate – even the skin cancer that’s put him in hospice care.

The 91-year-old of Grandville, Michigan has knitted over 8,000 hats for the homeless during the last 15 years.

Even though he spends his days fighting the cancer and a growth on his kidney, Morrie never stops stitching.

“Why do I do it? It just makes me feel good.” Boogart told WXMI. “This has been the best thing that’s happened to me because I just stay in my room,”

The crates of caps are to be delivered to homeless shelters throughout Grand Rapids in October.
