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.
Lilac Rose Jackson’s Medical condition...
Lilac was born prematurely and not expected to survive after contracting sepsis. She defied all the odd and made it home! Unfortunately she was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at 1 years old. We were told Lilac would likely never walk. Lilac has worked hard every single day since. She spends hours upon hours in therapy, and since having a life-changing spinal operation in April 2018 she is now on track to achieve what was once thought impossible and walk independently into her first day of school in September 2019. Lilac’s childhood is not like her peers, but she never complains, just always smiles. She is determined to smash down every barrier put in front of her.
A bit about Lilac Rose Jackson...
Lilac is an absolute ray of light. She loves swimming as it is when she feels most free and she loves cycling her therapy trike as she can beat her baby brother in a race on it. Lilac loves to play using her imagination and put on shows for her family singing her favourite Disney songs.
