When Holly Christensen heard that her friend’s young daughter had cancer, she felt helpless. Beyond offering comfort and support, what else could she do? But when she sat down and thought about everything that little girls lose while undergoing chemotherapy, she had an idea.
While remedying the symptom of hair loss might seem superficial, it can do wonders for a little girl’s spirit. That’s why she started The Magic Yarn Project.
This is two-year-old Lily, who was diagnosed with lymphoma. She completed this adorable princess look with a gorgeous Rapunzel wig.
While she’s beautiful and strong regardless of what her hair looks like…
…the smile that lights up her face when she wears this yarn wig is priceless.
It’s amazing what a little boost of confidence can do for morale!
Soon, mothers from around the nation with daughters who were diagnosed with cancer started asking if Christensen would make wigs for their little ones.
How could she say no? Making these fighters look like Disney princesses makes them feel special.
She started making as many wigs as she possibly could.
Eventually, she needed more help. That’s when these volunteers stepped in. They donate time and resources to this noble cause.
You can contribute by making some beanies! They serve as bases for the wigs.
You can also donate a bit of money to help cover costs.
