Oak Park Residents Crafts Wigs for Young Girls Battling Cancer

Residents at Belmont Village Senior Living in Oak Park craft wigs for young girls battling cancer.

This past week, residents at Belmont Village Senior Living in Oak Park came together to craft colorful wigs for The Magic Yarn Project, which provides beautiful and soft princess wigs to young girls battling cancer.

About The Magic Yarn Project

The mission of The Magic Yarn Project is to create magic in the lives of children battling cancer and to inspire volunteerism to make a difference. Chemotherapy treatments leave young scalps too sensitive for traditional wigs, but yarn-wigs are comfy, soft, and warm. Magic yarn wigs are inspired by beloved Disney characters, and invite children back to the world of play and daydreaming. They are a beacon of fun, laughter, and play during a scary time.
