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.

Lilah-Rebecca Harrison’s Medical condition...

My little girl is 3 months and 16 days old,she had hydrocephalus,she was born at 34 weeks and weighing 5lb3oz,her head measurement kept increasing so at 10 days old she had her first brain surgery to have a vp shunt inserted!the first operation didn’t go well for Lilah-Rebecca so 3 weeks after her first operation she had to under go another operation for a shunt revision,this time it helped drain the fluid and it still is and fingers crossed will stay the same. My little girl is a little soldier,at the 20 week scan when we found out that she had hydrocephalus and me and her dad were told to think about her quality of life&told us that she probably wouldn’t be able to breathe on her own,but we took our chances because we weren’t letting our girl go without a fight and now here she is!! When she was born she came out breathing and gave us the cry that just reassures you that they’re ok :) She’s doing well at the minute and is such a little miracle..
