Cuddle Bears for Pediatric Cancer
Organized by: Kristen Vogel
"Your child has cancer." An estimated 500,000 parents around the world hear those words every year. Can you imagine if that was you? What about, "I'm sorry, your child is dead." 91,250 kids lose their life to cancer every year. That means 91,250 sets of parents are planning their children's funerals every year because of this horrible disease. Knowing that at any moment really, I could be THAT MOM being told my currently happy and health two-year old has cancer, would change my world upside down! That is something that no parent should have to be told. Your donation will go towards purchasing a Cuddle Bear Book and Plush that will be donated to Children's HSHS St. John's Hospital in Springfield, IL to be given to children fighting cancer and other unimaginable things. Hopefully we can bring a smile to a child's face while they are undoubtedly fighting through the most horrible time of their life.
$25 will purchase one book and bear.
Usborne Books & More will also be matching 50% of all donations.
Thank you for your consideration.
