In 2019, Brooklyn Drewery made her way into the world with quite an emotional entrance. Brooklyn experienced a birth injury called, Brachial Plexus. This is an injury to her nerves located in her left arm and shoulder. Unfortunately, at birth she was not able to move any part of her left arm.
Brooklyn's parent's, Claire and Kyle Drewery, have done everything in their power to allow Brooklyn to have the most normal life as possible. Brooklyn's rehabilitation began at 4 months old. She went through several MRI's, ultrasounds and surgeries at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
CHOP has an amazing Brachial Plexus Injury Program, where one can find the specialized care they may need. Their goal is to help your child regain use of their injured limb and they offer a variety of treatment options for patients with brachial plexus and other peripheral nerve disorders, including occupational therapy and surgical interventions.
In hopes to bring awareness to brachial plexus, Blakely + Brooklyn Boxes will be donating a portion of the proceeds directly to the CHOP Brachial Plexus Injury Program.
The Blakely + Brooklyn boxes are fun filled sensory boxes that will keep your children entertained at home or on-the-go, and make great gifts. Sensory boxes are filled with a variety of textures for your child to explore and learn as they play. You can find our themed boxes here!
