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.

Tiger-Rose Stevens

Age 3

Hospital: Devon Area

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

Tiger-Rose Stevens’s Medical condition...

Tiger-Rose has global developmental delay, she was born at 30 weeks and has a brain injury consistent with her prematurity. She also has Pica, severe anaemia and a kidney disease that means she leaks protein in her urine which she is currently still being investigated for as so far she does not have a conclusive diagnosis for this and it affects her day to day life. She has recently begun a treatment plan of iron infusions monthly that are particularly distressing for her as she has an oversion to needles. But her anaemia has gotten so bad that she needed a blood transfusion this week and she appears to not be able to hold her oral iron at all. Her consultant has told us that the iron infusions are likely to be needed monthly.
