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.

Elijah eastwood’s Medical condition...

My son was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer in October 2018. It's called inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour. To get diagnoses he had numerous blood tests, biopsy on his tumour, MRI scans, ultrasound scans, genetic tests and poking and prodding from loads of different doctors. He's travelled quite far to different hospitals and monthly we have to go and collect His rare type of chemotherapy. He has been really struggling to take his medication recently. He had an NG line fitted yesterday. He's been through a really tough time these past few months and my friend told me about this and I feel he really deserves one.

A bit about Elijah eastwood...

He loves anything with wheels. Cars, lorries, scooters, buses, taxis, aeroplanes. Loves playing outside and with bubbles. He loves playing with his older brother and he loves making us all laugh. He's the little joker in the family.
