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.

Hospital: James Cook Hospital

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

Jacob Anthony Hulbert’s Medical condition...

Jacob is twin two born at 29wks. He struggled to breathe from birth and ventilated. At 5 months old had a tracheostomy fitted to keep him alive as it was touch and go. Also a gastrostomy fitted as he won’t eat food. He is in and out of hospital so much with infections and requires oxygen or humidified oxygen, numerous antibiotics and bloods taken etc. Jacob has daily tracheostomy changes which he gets really distressed.

A bit about Jacob Anthony Hulbert...

Jacob is a very easy going little boy and takes it all in his stride. He’s a friendly little guy who loves to sign to communicate with his twin brother and family. He enjoys being outside playing but as a single parent it’s hard with both boys and all Jacobs emergency equipment.
