Holly Christensen, a mother of three and former oncology nurse in Alaska, crochets flowing wigs out of soft yarn for children whove lost their hair to chemotherapy in their battle with cancer. Each wig is modeled after the childs favorite Disney princess, which Christensen hopes will help them get through their difficult battle.

She got the idea after her friends 2-year-old daughter, Lily, was diagnosed with lymphoma. To bring a little bit of magic into such a difficult time in their life is so rewarding. Its almost equally been so rewarding and magical to meet people who want to help, Christensen told ABC news.

Knowing how difficult it would be for her to lose her beautiful blonde curls, I made her a Rapunzel yarn wig, she writes
