A former children’s cancer nurse also happens to be VERY crafty. Holly Christenson is the creator of “The Magic Yarn Project” and uses colorful yarn to create wigs for little girls who have lost their hair to cancer treatment. The yarn is also soft and more comfortable than traditional wigs on the sweet heads of these little patients.
It all started when Christensen made a Disney princess wig out of yarn for a friend’s sick child. She never imagined her creation would spread nationwide.
Since requests for the wigs have begun pouring in, a GoFundMe page to help cover the costs of yarn has raised more than $6,000. Volunteers around the country are also helping to take on some of Christensen’s workload.
Holly’s message is simple, she says if a Disney princess gets cancer, she’s still a beautiful princess.
