    Hi….my name is Vicki Jellie (just like the lady in your article) and I live in Warrnambool, Victoria in Australia. Just for fun I Googled my own name and was very interested when this article came up about your Vicki Jellie knitting caps for Cancer.
    I too am involved with Cancer awareness/ fundraising/lobbying – in our region- we do not have radiotherapy in our region and I have founded a community group called “Peter’s Project” – 3 years ago to bring Radiotherapy and an Integrated Cancer care Centre to our town.
    My 49 year old husband died of cancer 3.5 years ago. The closest treatment facility is 3 – 4 hours away.
    A long story but….. it has amazed me that someone else with the exact name as myself is doing something Cancer related as well!!!
    I would love to be in contact with her if that was possible . My email address is peterjellie@bigpond.com
    If you were able to contact her and tell her of this message that would be fantastic if she wanted to be in contact with me.
    Kind regards…..Vicki Jellie
