The Erica's Wish Blanket program began in July 2010. We wanted to comfort the children in Oncology at SickKids Hospital by means of a blanket just as Erica was comforted by hers. We handed out over 75 blankets our first day to the children on the Oncology floor.
Even though the race stopped, the blanket program has always been our main focus. Each month 30 blankets are delivered to the SickKids Oncology department. Upon admission, our blankets are given to children to comfort them during their scariest time in life. Many times we have heard how the blanket has acted as their favourite stuffed toy they left at home or put a smile on their face when they were so unsure of why they were in the hospital.
comforting kids with cancer, believe in a better tomorrow.
