Our Children

Be Brave Bears is a charitable organisation run by volunteers who send personalised keepsake bears to children who are terminally ill or have life limiting conditions. Each of our bears is sponsored by businesses, groups or families, meaning these bears are free of charge to the children. Once complete each bear is placed in a special keepsake bag and given to the child complete with a numbered certificate. Once the child has received their bear the sponsor will receive a thank you photograph via e-mail of the completed bear and a sponsorship certificate with the name of the child who you have sponsored. Each bear is allocated a number and will appear on our Roll of Honour. If the child on this page has already been sponsored, but due to the timing of the previous sponsorship it has not yet been removed from this area, your sponsorship will be automatically allocated to the child next on the list (Priority order). This seldom happens but we must highlight that it can occur.

Age 6

Hospital: Great Ormond Street

Note: Bear pictured may not be the bear given to the child (most of the time it is though)

Ollie harrison’s Medical condition...

I would like to nominate Ollie for one of these special little bears, just to show how special he is to everyone. Vascular EDS is the most serious. It affects the blood vessels and internal organs, which can cause them to split open and lead to life-threatening bleeding. ... thin skin with visible small blood vessels, particularly on the upper chest and legs. No matter what Ollie deals with on day to day basis, he's still a happy boy a lives each day to the max. For being so brave and understand that with this condition Ollie cannot do things like and other normal child of his age.

A bit about Ollie harrison...

Ollie is a very happy, fun loving child who loves to show his love and appreciation to everybody. He loves to play his computer with his big brother, play with his friends, go to the park and ride his bike. Due to his condition there are things Ollie is unable to do due to safety but he still smiles he never lets anything gets in his way.
