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: Alder Hey

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

Jack Mcnab’s Medical condition...

Jack was diagnosed with saggital craniosynostosis at A few months old. This is early fusel of one or more of the main sutures in a child skull. Jack spent most of the first part of his life back and forth at hospital for appointments and numerous ongoing tests. At age just 18 months jack went through a 10 hour operation to remodel/reconstruct his skull. This was to prevent any pressure developeing on the brain possibly leading to brain damage, blindness and much more.

A bit about Jack Mcnab...

Jack is like a little world wind that never stops, he’s very cheeky and crazy and likes to think he rules the roost. He absolutely loves cars, trucks, trains and bunny rabbits.
