Staci Wright, 17, Eugene, OR ::: Staci is the founder of Angel Hair Foundation. In 2006, Staci was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma – a bone cancer that was infecting her skull. Initially, doctors thought that Staci had an easily removable tumor, but when they biopsied it they discovered it was cancer. “It was kind of too shocking to process it,” says Staci. She underwent chemo and soon lost her hair. “I know how it feels to be out in public with people looking at you and feeling self conscious, so I just wanted to help.” Once Staci found her Angel Hair, she wanted to make it easily available to other kids who are fighting cancer.
