BPAN Warriors

BPAN Warriors is a growing international community of individuals who have loved ones directly affected by BPAN. We strive to provide parents, siblings, family members, friends, caregivers and medical professionals, a safe and compassionate online forum to exchange information and provide easier access to scientific research and community resources. Most importantly, we hope that through CONNECTION, we may bolster you as you traverse this often complicated medical journey.

Together “WE CAN” meet the challenges that we may encounter on this BPAN Journey.

Comfort Cases


On any given day, there are nearly 437,500 youth in the foster care system in the United States.  Of the thousands of youth who enter the system each year, most arrive carrying little more than the clothes on their backs.  If they are afforded the opportunity to collect any personal belongings, many are then given a trash bag in which to place and carry their personal items.  It is a time of great upheaval and instability, and their first foster home placement is unlikely to be their last.  Many youth in foster care will be moved from home to home multiple times, carrying their life’s treasures in a trash bag.  At Comfort Cases, we believe that every child deserves to feel a sense of dignity.  Every child deserves to pack their belongings in a special bag that they can call their own.  It is our mission as a charity to provide a proper bag, filled with comfort and essential items, to these brave youth in foster care on their journey to find their forever home.
