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.

Clara Charlton

Age 1

Hospital: Leeds General Infirmary

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

Clara Charlton’s Medical condition...

Clara has spent pretty much the entirety of the last 10 months in hospital. She has a rare condition called Denys Drash Syndrome. This meant Clara developed cancer in her kidney so it had to be removed, then whilst undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy the other kidney failed. As a result Clara is completely reliant upon haemodialysis to survive. She needs to be 2 years cancer free before she can receive a kidney transplant.

A bit about Clara Charlton...

Clara loves dancing and playing. She is a very bright and happy child who doesn't let things get in her way. She loves Elmo and Tangled and sensory toys.
