A former cancer nurse who made a Disney princess wig out of yarn for a friend’s sick child never imagined her creation would spread nationwide.
“We have individual families contacting us wanting wigs for their own little girls who had just been diagnosed, and we have four hospitals right now that have ordered wigs,” Holly Christensen, creator of “The Magic Yarn Project,” said.
Christensen, of Palmer, Alaska, had made a Disney princess wig with yarn for her own children when she heard about her friend’s child.
“Last fall one of my friends from nursing school, I found out their daughter was diagnosed with cancer,” she told the news station. “I knew having been a cancer nurse what she was about to go through.”
Seeing how much her own children enjoyed the wig, she thought sending one to her friend’s child might help cheer her up.
“It’s so precious,” Christensen said. “She’s stroking her Rapunzel hair and she’s just like, ‘Pretty soon my hair is going to grow back and I’m going to have real Rapunzel hair.’”
