Magic Yarn project aims to reach as many children with cancer as possible thereby making them have a wig.The plan was launched by a former nurse.It is certainly so crucial for these little warriors to have a good-psychology during their chemotherapy.
Holly Christensen,a nurse in Alaska in the US,decided to weave a wig for her friend’s little daughter.Because she was diagnosed with cancer and would go through chemotherapy.A a result,she would lose her lovely hair for a high possibility.”I knew she would be going through a difficult time, and that no one would be able to take her suffering away. I also knew that losing her long, curly blonde hair at not even 3 years old would be difficult for her, so I figured that the yarn wig could help bring a little magic and fun to a difficult time in her life.”she said.
When Christensen completed her weaving,other parents also demanded for it.Her first wig was like Rapunzel’s and admired by many.”She absolutely loved it and her mother expressed that it brought joy and light to an otherwise difficult and dark time during her life,” she told.
Thanks to many requests from parents whose children are suffering from cancer and chemo,Christensen established The Magic Yarn Project with her friend Bree Hitchcock.
“The chemotherapy leaves their skin very tender and sensitive,” Holly told.
What is more,they’re trying to convert the Magic Yarn into a nonprofit project to amplify their reach.”To bring a little bit of magic into such a difficult time in their life is so rewarding,” Holly says. “It’s almost equally been so rewarding and magical to meet people who want to help.”
”The mission of The Magic Yarn Project is to create beautiful and soft princess yarn wigs for little girls with cancer and to encourage and facilitate volunteerism by involving communities nationwide in this project. We are so excited to see where this takes us and look forward to bringing light and magic to an otherwise very difficult time in the lives of little cancer fighters.”Now,they are waiting for the donations to help much more children fighting against cancer.
