The Hair Fairy Project:
What is it? The Hair Fairy Project brings encouragement, humor, and
insight to children with cancer on the day they lose their hair.
Hair Fairies are like the Tooth Fairy. Mr. and Mrs. Hair Fairy, a
loving couple, leave money or a gift, a letter
from the Hair Fairy, and the book, H is for Hair Fairy, an Alphabet
of Encouragement and Insight for Kids (and Kids at Heart!) With Cancer
under a child's or young adult's pillow or in their room on the day
he/she loses his/her hair during chemotherapy treatments.
Who would do it and where? The project would be administered through
Child Life Specialists in children's hospitals and/or through pediatric
oncology offices or through volunteers for the Hair Fairy Project at
the child's home depending on where the child is when he loses his hair.
When? On or about the day the child/young adult loses her hair.
Why? To bring smiles and encouragement to children and young adults
living with cancer and its accompanying treatments.
