Sawyer believes in the transformative power of love and charity, and his wish is for no child to ever have to experience the pain of cancer. And let’s be real, who wants to stare at a plain, boring white bed sheet all day? Not Sawyer, and definitely not the kids he’s trying to help!

Each sheet is bursting with color and patterns that’ll make you smile from ear to ear. And best of all, they’re a symbol of the love and care that Sawyer and his team have for every child enduring. a hospital stay. They want to make sure no child ever feels alone in their fight, and that there’s always a reason to keep smiling.
Bringing smiles and comfort to those in need, one cozy gift at a time.
Meet Sawyer Riggenbach – an eight-year-old warrior who bravely fought cancer for five long months at Akron Children’s Hospital. And if that wasn’t enough, he faced it all during the chaos and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Talk about a tough cookie!
But here’s the thing about Sawyer – he never let fear, stress, or loneliness get the best of him. With his signature optimism and generosity, he tackled every round of chemotherapy and long day with a smile on his face and hope in his heart.
As visitation was restricted during his hospital stay, Sawyer’s uncle gave him a thoughtful gift that made all the difference – new, printed sheets to make his bed a more joyful place to sleep, play, and recover.
Those sheets were more than just a fun addition to his room – they were a foundation for Sawyer as he coped with the challenges of treatment and its side effects. They helped him connect with his medical team in a lighthearted way, even amidst the loneliness of pandemic isolation. It just goes to show that something as simple as a fun set of sheets can turn a hospital room into a cozy, comforting home.
And now, Sawyer’s Wish™ is on a mission to spread that same joy and comfort to other children and families fighting cancer. Because when it comes to healing, the mental and emotional state of a child is just as important as their physical health. So let’s join Sawyer and his team in making bed time magical, one sheet at a time!
For children facing serious illnesses and extended hospital stays, even the smallest comforts can make a huge difference. Fun, printed bed sheets can provide a sense of normalcy and joy in an otherwise sterile and unfamiliar hospital environment.
By giving sick children something playful and colorful to brighten up their hospital beds, we can help improve their mental and emotional well-being, providing them with a sense of comfort and security during a challenging time.
