Hi my name is Maura Grier and I am 15 years old. I am the person behind bravery blankets. Bravery blankets is an organization dedicated to making then donating blankets to the interventional radiology department at AI DuPont hospital for children.  It would mean a lot if you would donate anything so I can get fabric to make a lot of blankets! The story behind it is that I have had medical issues since age 6. I have ehlers danlos syndrome (a connective tissue disorder) and other medical conditions that come with this. I have had 4 major surgeries and after the most recent I began with chronic nausea that has since left me on a feeding tube (NJ tube). An NJ tube is a tube that goes in your nose down your throat pass your stomach and into the small intestine. This uncomfortable but nessacary  procedure is done in IR and in many cases awake. There are many other procedures don't in IR that kids have to endure and I want to reward those kids with a blanket for their bravery, hence the name "bravery blankets"

Maura- We were happy to hear you were back home with your family. I posted your page on my FB page to try and get the word out a little more. After everything you have gone through and continue to go through, you still think about others. That speaks volumes about you. I hope this donation gets you a little closer to your goal. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.
