See Here: This Legend Creates Special ‘Princess’ Wigs For Little Girls With Cancer And They Are Magical

You may not think of how important your hair is until you face losing it. But if you have cancer and undergo chemotherapy, as we know, the chance of hair loss is very real. Unfortunately the big C doesn’t care if you are man, woman or child, it will try its best to take you down. However, in the face of such adversity it is important for suffers to use their energy to focus on staying healthy, rather than worrying about the way they look.
It’s easy for me to say this, but doing it is a whole different kettle of fish.
How do you explain to a little girl why her luscious locks are beginning to fall out? How do you make the process easier? Enter Holy Christensen and her “Magic Yarn Project.” If you’ve never heard of either of these names then prepare to be enlightened and left truly inspired.

The Alaskan woman is bringing a little bit of magic into the lives of young girls losing their hair with her wigs made out of yarn. And they aren’t just any wigs, they are “princess” wigs.
Christensen used to work as a cancer nurse so when her friend’s two-year-old daughter was diagnosed she was fully aware of how difficult the treatment was going to be. She told ABC News, “She’s such a girly girl and loves princesses and is about to lose her long beautiful hair.” And so the project started.
While putting together her own daughters’ Halloween costumes, where they dressed as Frozen’s Princess Elsa and Princess Anna, she became pretty nifty at making unique hairstyles. So Christensen called upon her talents once again to make a wig out of yellow yarn to resemble Rapunzel’s long braid. She explained that cancer patients don’t like to wear traditional wigs because “the chemotherapy leaves the skin very tender and sensitive” so hers “are made on soft crocheted beanies.”

Obviously the Rapunzel wig was a huge hit with the little girl and the word spread about town. Soon Christensen had other families requesting similar hairpieces for their own children and other sufferers.
Christensen’s creations were in such high demand that she set up a workshop and is now hoping to recruit more volunteers. All the wigs made are given away for free so she is raising money for supplies to make this possible.

Christensen said, “To bring a little bit of magic into such a difficult time in their life is so rewarding. It’s almost equally been so rewarding and magical to meet people who want to help.” This includes a craft group in a women’s prison, every little helps.
Keep up the good work Holy Christensen and your team! See you in a bit I’m off to donate.
