I am a Brave Soul!
Share your story and apply for a Brave Soul Blanket

Hello, Brave Soul!  We are so excited you're here!  Before you move on to our application, there are just a few things we'd like you to know.

 

First and foremost, we we want you to know that even though we wish we could send blankets to everyone living with a life-altering illness, we are limited.  So by you taking a few extra minutes to thoroughly read through this intro and disclaimers, then move onto the application, it really helps us streamline our donation program!  We ask that you please take a moment to share a little bit about your journey with life-altering illnesses.

 

Although we do not have the ability to send blankets to every individual who applies or is nominated, we absolutely do read through each and every form.  And wow! You all have some incredible stories to tell, each so unique.  Wherever your journey takes you, remember that you are one amazing Brave Soul and we are so honored that you took time to share a glimpse of your story with us!

 

Prior to filling out the form below, please make sure that you meet ALL (3) of our required criteria to be eligible for our Brave Soul Blanket donation program.

  1. Have a medically diagnosed life-altering illness (e.g., CF, EDS, epilepsy, MS, MG, cancers, CP, autoimmune disease, etc.), a woman with high-risk pregnancy with complications or on bedrest, or a parent with preemie in the NICU.

  2. Between the ages of 18-45 years old.
