My daughter got diagnosed with Leukemia in February 2019. Binkees was recommended to me in a support group. After reaching out to them, they sent her a Binkeez blanket within a week! It is so soft and comfortable. We very much appreciate gestures like this during this difficult time.

My daughter recently received a Binkeez blanket. It is beautiful and so soft and so warm and comfy. I am beyond pleased with this new blanket. As a medically fragile special needs girl this new blanket will bring so much to our time at home and also our time in the hospital. I would highly recommend Binkeez for Comfort.

We stumbled upon your blankets when our 15 year old son, Alex, was inpatient at Levine Children’s Hospital. Alex, who is diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease, went into respiratory arrest on November 28th. December 10th, we made the heart wrenching decision to have a tracheostomy done. Alex spent 50 days inpatient during this last hospitalization and finally came home on January 16th. And just last week, we received his super soft blanket. The weight of it and the softness just calmed his body when I laid it on him tonight. We can’t thank you enough for getting it to us so quickly. It is perfect!

Our 3yr daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia in October 2018. She loves blankets and the one sent to us from Binkeez has been by far her must have. Every night, she has to have this on her and her clinic/hospital visits. A fantastic organization that has provided a great blanket for our daughter as she fights to be survivor. Thank you so much!

Our son has all leukemia and we heard about binkeez through a Facebook group. They were wonderful and sent him a warm green cameo blanket and he loves it and he was so surprised. I can’t express how much this group has helped bring my son’s spirits up during a trying time. Thank you again for the blanket

We were fortunate enough to receive a Binkeez for Comfort blanket during his 4th round of chemotherapy. He had been diagnosed with AML (leukemia) in July 2016 had to have a bone marrow transplant, had Fanconi Anemia, Autism and Sensory Disorder. He absolutely loved his blanket! It was super soft, the best quality material and washed wonderfully. Manuel unfortunately passed away in November 2018. Binkeez for Comfort were kind enough to send us a gorgeous memorial piece that I will always cherish. This company went above and beyond when they didn’t have too. #teammanuel #unicornstrong

Binkeez for Comfort has been amazing to all of us! Not only did they make my 7 year old son, with Leukemia, a special blanket that was made just for him and named after him - but then they surprised my two daughters and blessed them with their very own, unique, Binkeez Blankets! Then to top it all off, they gave me a family size of the blanket named after my son. They never ask for a thing in return. They are all loving, caring, and wonderful to every family and they go above and beyond to make each child, and their families, feel special and loved. Binkeez will always have our love, appreciation, and support. They've been such a blessing!

"Being home from the hospital is treating us well, especially for my girl thanks to Binkeez for Comfort. We came home to a box addressed to “FIGHTER CARMEL” with an amazingly soft blanket made just for her. Such a timely gift of tangible comfort for her as she recovers- and a gift she will be able to enjoy for years to come. So, grateful!"

This was something I posted on my daughter's care page when we returned from the hospital. I had heard of Binkeez for Comfort from a friend, and from the moment I reached out---it was nothing but incredible. Such compassion and care in every communication exchange with the Binkeez team and I am just blown away. My daughter absolutely loves her Binkeez----seriously, it is SOO soft and the perfect size for her to truly wrap up and snuggle in.

We are so grateful for the Binkeez team and everyone who makes this possible!!!!!!!! What a gift to critically ill children and their families---truly!!!

I heard of binkeez for comfort off of a page I follow so I applied for it for my son and pretty much immediately got an email saying he qualified for a blanket. The blanket came so fast I was shocked! His blanket is so soft I wanted to keep it for myself. I didn’t expect the blanket to be so soft and cute. He loved it as soon as I gave it to him. So glad I applied for one!

My son is 3 years old. May 2018 his father and I were told that his heart was failing and that he needed a heart transplant. He received the Berlin heart to bridge him to transplant. June 2018 his new heart arrived! We are now 6 months post transplant. When I heard of this organization I knew Aries had to have one! The blanket is so soft and cozy he absolutely loves it! Thank you so much Binkeez!
