Family searches for young son’s ‘best friend’

July 1, 2013

CUMBERLAND – Kayden Watson calls it his “Monkey Friend,” a worn-out monkey blanket that has been his comfort keepsake since birth and his constant companion during 11 surgeries to repair gastroschisis, a congenital abdominal wall defect.
Kayden, 2½, lost his monkey blanket Saturday during a family outing at the Dairy Queen in North Attleboro and his mother is asking for the public’s help in finding it.
“This is Kayden’s best friend. We have searched high and low and are hoping someone may have picked it up,” says Jennifer Harken of Cumberland.
