Review for Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Bear Necessities is a unique organization in which it directly helps children and families affected by Pediatric Cancer as well as raise funds for cancer research programs. By utilizing this twofold approach they are able to not only help the families but also work towards a cure. The Small Miracle program grants children a wish ranging from a limo ride downtown, a princess bed to a Rihanna concert and meet and greet. Big or small the idea is to provide patients a memorable and fun experience when they can forget about being a child with cancer and concentrate on just being a child. The research grants allow Physicians throughout the country to work towards the common goal of treating and ultimately finding a cure for Pediatric Cancer. Not only does Bear Necessities raise money for this disease, they truly understand and work closely with the medical community. As a volunteer for Bear Necessities I have seen first hand the amazing work this organization does. The staff is truly committed and have personal ties to the devastation of Pediatric Cancer. They act as supporters, advocates and family to the little lives they are fighting so passionately for.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Working with the children and seeing the hard work Bear Necessities does day in and day out put into action.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Some of the smartest, most hard working and dedicated individuals I know.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand into more markets, donate it back to research and ultimately find a cure!
