Angel Hair Foundation
Angel Hair Foundation is a private, non-profit corporation that reaches out to kids and teens in Oregon who have lost their hair due to medical illness (cancer or alopecia).
The foundation provides the funding needed to purchase an "Angel Hair System." This superior-quality, medical prosthesis provides kids with confidence and self-esteem and allows them to swim, sleep and play without fear of the prosthesis falling off or slipping.
Staci Wright and her mother, Debbie, started Angel Hair Foundation in 2007 after Staci was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer, and began 10 monhts of chemotherapy and five weeks of radtion therapy. Feeling depressed about the loss of her hair, Staci's parents researched and purchased a proshetic hair system that immediately make her feel more confident. During her time at the hosptital, Staci met other kids struggling with hair loss and decided she wanted to do something to help.
To date, the foundation has provided more than 250 children in Oregon with their own hair system, at no cost. Angel Hair Foundation is served by a six-member board of directors.
