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.

Age 3

Hospital: Evelina London Childrens Hospital

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

Jessica Alice Harger’s Medical condition...

Jess was HIE grade 2 and bacterial meningitis at birth. This caused cerebral palsy and was diagnosed at just a few months old. This February Jess was really unwell and actually had hydrocephalus and now has a shunt inserted. Unfortunately it failed very shortly after insertion so she had a total of 4 operations to her brain to get the right valve fitted.

A bit about Jessica Alice Harger...

Jess is AMAZING! She’ll be 3 in June, and can crawl really quickly. She LOVES any sort of music and bright colours. Jess loves crawling around the garden and generally being outside. She is always smiling and laughing and continues to surprise us with her abilities. Nursery rhymes and reading our part of our normal day and she will happily let me go through her entire box of books several times a day.
