Woman creates Disney princess wigs out of yarn for children battling cancer

(FOX News) - 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.

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."
