I taught myself to crochet and have been crocheting since 1998. I crochet thousands of hats, baby blankets, lapghans,and chemo hats for donation. With the help of my husband I had the opportunity to share my passion by delivering these gifts to different hospitals and shelters.

In 1999 my husband was diagnosed with leukemia and although the battle was long and arduous he conquered the disease and was a cancer survivor. However, my loving husband has since passed and since 2013 I have dedicated my life to bringing a new faith and optimism to those who continue to endure.

In my husband’s loving memory I began a new mission and created the nonprofit, Zia’s Crochet for Courage and Hope, with the goal to breathe new life and bravery to those who need it.
