Staci Wright was in the eighth grade when she was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma, a type of bone cancer, and began 10 months of chemotherapy and five weeks of radiation therapy. Staci felt sad and depressed about losing her hair and didn’t want to go to school. Her parents were able to research and purchase a prosthetic hair system. Immediately, Staci felt more confident and was able to socialize without anxiety. But when she continued to meet other kids struggling with hair loss at the hospital, she decided to do something about it.
Staci and her mother, Debbie, started Angel Hair Foundation in 2007 to purchase hair systems for kids facing hair loss in Oregon. We are thrilled to say that Staci is healthy, happy and in med school pursuing her dream of curing cancer!
