Fleece & Thank You was inspired by a friend Sophie, 4 years old and battling neuroblastoma. At a time in her life when she should be playing with dolls and meeting new friends, Sophie was taking trips to the hospital to battle one of the toughest forms of childhood cancer- this meant many rounds of difficult chemotherapy treatments involving multiple overnight stays in the hospital. Sophie had her childhood stolen from her, and it is our goal to provide hope and comfort to all children like Sophie facing the disconnection of hospital treatments. Our founder, Nicholas Kristock, saw this disconnection and needed to do something about it, and that is where Fleece & Thank You was born.
