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.

Zak jeffery slater’s Medical condition...

I would like to nominate my little boy as I got told he wouldn’t make it when I went into labour with him at 25 weeks and then was born at 27 weeks was born 3 1/2 months premature causing him to have no bile ducts when he was born due to he’s prematurity. He has a life threatening liver disease called biliary atresia which only affects 1 in 18,000 babies. Which he will need a liver transplant for soon. I would just like to give him something as a reminder of how special he is to us and strong on a day to day basis from having medication daily, an ng tube, a feeding pump, hospital visits each month etc.
