Review for Binkeez for Comfort, Shrewsbury, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When my younger son was little, Binkeez sent him this wonderful blanket! Ciarlo was born with Spina Bifida and hydrocephalus. He has had 10 surgeries and countless appointments, scans and X-rays in hi 9 short years and his blanket from Binkeez for comfort has accompanied him to it all! 4 years ago when Ciarlo’s big brother Dominic was diagnosed, at the age of 7 1/2, with Glioblastoma (an always fatal brain cancer) Ciarlo sent his special blanket along for Dominic to use at the hospital. Within just a few days, the wonderful staff at Binkeez sent Dominic his very own blanket! Dominic’s blanket accompanied him to EVERY chemo, radiation treatment and surgery/hospital stay during his 9 month battle. After Dominic passed away, Binkeez sent a beautiful wood carving with Dominicks name on it and named a blanket for Dominic. They sent us a small one for Ciarlo (then just 6) and a larger sized blanket for us to use. They have since also named a blanket for Ciarlo too! We all sleep with our blankets every night, they are no longer just for the hospital! They bring us comfort every night. For the first 3 Christmases after Dominic passed away, the staff at Binkeez also sent us special ornaments in Dominic’s memory that have so touched our hearts! We are so thankful for this wonderful nonprofit and the difference they are making for medically needy families!

Review for Arms Wide Open Childhood Cancer Foundation, Inc., Marlboro, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Arms wide open brought us on a bereavement retreat that helped us begin working through losing our 8 year old son, Dominic, to brain cancer. We are looking forward to returning to the retreat which felt like a safe place with others that understand our heartache.
