Brody's Blanket

UPDATE: WE FOUND ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dearest friends:

I REALLY need your help finding this blanket. This is officially the most important blanket in the history of all blankets.

This blanket belongs to a sweet friend of mine named Brody. He found out in September 2013 that he has Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumors (DSRCT), a rare form of cancer. He's been fighting so hard and gone through so much, unfortunately Brody just got some not so great news that his cancer has spread. He's to the point now where it is time to manage his pain and head home.

This blanket has traveled to every treatment, every surgery, every appointment, even to Texas during his journey. His mother has asked that we all be on the lookout for a duplicate blanket that she would like to have for herself. It doesn't have a tag so I cannot tell you what brand name it is.

Please check the thrift stores in your area and see if you can find one. She thinks it might have come from Shopko, Kmart, or Walmart. It is toddler sized. It is soft and fleece-like (but not fleece). It has the pattern in reverse on the back. It is loved and needed.

Please look for this blanket. Please share it amongst all of your thrifty friends. Please check Goodwill, The Salvation Army, Savers, and any other thrift store in your area. Please move Heaven and Earth to find this blanket. Having a blanket like this one will bring so much comfort to his mom. The thought of saying goodbye to this kiddo is just about more than we can bear and we are doing everything we can to show him and his family love.  #TeamBrody #BrodysBlanket #ROAR

P.S. If you can't find the blanket but would like to help another way, Brody also has a Dream List.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment’s “Dolphin Tale 2” continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery—thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail—made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie “Dolphin Tale.”

It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Connick, Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins’ social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.
