S.O.C.K.S., Inc. is a nonprofit 501©(3) organization that collects aloe-infused, moisturizing and bright crazy socks. Why? Cancer is a silent killer.

   There will be approximately 1,658,370 new cancer patients diagnosed this year according to the American Cancer Society, in the United States alone. When first diagnosed with cancer the patient may be frightened, angry or in disbelief. While undergoing cancer treatments there is a vast array of emotions flowing through the patient, as well as their family and friends. The patients are scared, anxious and uncertain of how the treatment will affect them and their loved ones. We cannot make the cancer go away, but we can be there to assist patients with a comforting pair of socks or a fun pair of socks as they go through this difficult time. Hospital gowns are ugly, rooms are plain but who says your feet cannot be comfortable and funny in socks! Patient after patient, as well as the hospital staff have told us how much they appreciate their socks and well wishes. They have brightened their day and put a smile on their face. This is the goal of S.O.C.K.S., Inc to “PUT A SMILE ON THE FACE OF A CANCER PATIENT, one pair at a time.
