The Universal Pediatrics Newton team handmade and donated 7 fleece blankets to Breslyn's Blankets of Love based out of Des Moines, Iowa. Breslyn was diagnosed with Leukemia at 3 years old. A blanket was one of the things she always asked for during her battle with cancer that made her feel secure and warm like a hug.
Breslyn wanted others kids fighting cancer to feel comforted by a blanket and so that is how Breslyn's Blankets of Love was created. Children all over the US can request a blanket and anyone can donate blankets or materials to make blankets. To learn more go to www.breslynsblanketsoflove.com.
