Something magical happens when this group of crochet enthusiasts meet to make dreams come true.

Former oncology nurse and mom Holly Christensen has started a group called The Magic Yarn Project, a clan of dedicated crocheters that meet to make Disney princess wigs for children with cancer.

A daughter of one of Christensen's friends was diagnosed with lymphoma so she decided to make a Rapunzel yarn wig. Here's what she told Babble:

"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."

Designs include princess Elsa and Anna from Frozen and princess Jasmine from Aladdin.

The group has a GoFundMe account set up to help fund even more wigs for children around the world battling cancer.

Six year old Avery Huffman was recently diagnosed with an inoperable, cancerous brain tumor, but that won't stop her from being a princess! Kristen Bell, voice actress of Anna in Frozen, left a message for Avery letting her know that in light of her bravery, Avery will be crowned an honorary Princess of Arendelle. 

No, I'm not crying! Someone is cutting onions in here.
