A project that helped family and friends of a woman who died of cancer deal with their grief has blossomed into an effort to help others.

When Andrea Fisher was fighting oral cancer, they began knitting caps to help her and other patients losing their hair from chemo.

Fisher died at the age of 42. Two years and 72 caps later, Fisher's friends and family delivered the caps Monday night to the Stanford Cancer Center.

The group also wants to educate others about oral cancer and the importance of annual screenings with your dentist.
