TRAUMA BEARS

Trauma Bears

When infants and young children arrive to the hospitals emergency department.  They are often scared and in pain, a cuddle buddy can become magic.

Children not only love them, parents very much appreciate the distraction provided by the bears.

Those cute little smiles make it all worth while.

A couple of older patients, when presented with a bear stated “I never ever had a teddy bear” become emotional at the fact that there is someone who cares.

We have been lucky to find two companies who continue to donate the bears for this program.
