'Fleece and Thank You' Blankets Provide Comfort for Children Battling Illnesses

Hospitals rooms can be scary, unfamiliar places for anyone, but especially to a sick child.

One local group is trying to change that by providing them something warm and cozy as they go through treatment.

Fleece and Thank You is a non-profit that provides fleece blanket kits that can be customized for delivery to a favorite patient that has an extended hospital stay. Once completed, the person who made the blanket records a short video wishing the child well. The blanket can be waiting at the hospital and when the parents download the Fleece and Thank You app, they enter a code from the sticker and download the video. 

Executive Director Nicholas Kristock and Ashley Sultini, a child life specialist at St. John Providence in Detroit, visited the Fox2 News Studios Saturday morning to showcase some of the blankets and discuss how others can get involved. Watch the video above and click here for more information.
