Spreading Cheer with a Teddy Bear

Hospitalized children and their families may be coping with the potential loneliness, isolation and anxiety caused by illness. Bear Givers Hospital Visits provide young patients and their families with the dual gift of a personal visit and a warm, cuddly bear. Bear Givers representatives travel to hospitals across the United States and around the world, visiting pediatric patients, and giving them the distinctive Bear Givers teddy bears.

Learning to Care with a Bear

Undergoing and understanding medical procedures and treatments can be both frightening and overwhelming for young patients. In order to alleviate the uncertainty, hospitals hold special Teddy Bear clinics during which the children are encouraged to both perform mock medical procedures on and comfort their furry friends. As a result, pediatric patients can feel more knowledgeable and relaxed about their own treatments.
