BENEFITING: Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation
ORGANIZER: Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation
Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation is the leading national organization devoted to help eliminate pediatric cancer, and provide support and advocacy to children and familes affected by it. I have had the pleasure of serving on this amazing organization's executive board since 2010 and can personally attest to the impact Bear Necessities has on so many childrens lives. In addition to funding groundbreaking research for new cancer drugs, Bear Necessities provide "Bear Hugs" to each and every child referred to the organization who is diagnosed with pediatric cancer. Can you imagine what it would be like if your own child spent countless days undergoing chemotherapy and their only wish is to hopefully make it to their next birthday? Through Bear Hugs, children affected with pediatric cancer are afforded the opportunity to experience things that most of our children take part in each and every day, such as lunch and shopping with friends at the American Doll Store; a Cubs, Bears, or Bulls game outing; or even a weekend getaway at a waterpark.
I ask that you please consider giving whatever you can to help further Bear Necessities important mission. Any amount will help!
