Cancer is awful, and childhood cancer might just be one of the most tragic things anyone can endure. Thankfully, there are people like Holly Christensen and Bree Hitchcock who are working to make pediatric cancer patients feel a smidge better – one Disney Princess wig at a time.

Holly and Bree started the initiative, Magic Yarn Project after a friend’s daughter was diagnosed with cancer. Holly, who is a former cancer nurse, told ABC News, “It’s so heart-wrenching and life-changing to work in cancer. Last fall, I found out that the little girl of one of my college friends was just diagnosed with cancer. She’s such a girly girl and loves princesses and is about to lose her long beautiful hair.”

Holly invoked her Halloween costume-making skills and made the little girl a beautiful Rapunzel wig out of soft, yellow yarn. From there, the project grew legs and, according to ABC News, “Christensen set up a workshop and quickly started hearing from dozens of other people looking to either help or get a beanie from a family member.”
