Bee Brave Buddies is wonderful! They put smiles on so many children's faces while they are battling cancer. This gives the children hope while they are going through really tough times in there lives. I know the brave buddy had made my son so happy! He takes his buddy everywhere with him so he can be brave though his cancer journey.
Awesome gift , made my baby smile
Thank you so much for Isla’s bee brave buddy, she loves it!! She sleeps next to Isla every night and she knows if she feels sad she gives the doll a big cuddle.
Thank you so much.
My little girls was diagnosed with stage 4 Ewings sarcoma at the age of 3. She now 4 but had to endure her left arm being amputated from the shoulder amongst her protol treatment. A heartfelt thank you to the bee brave buddies team as you created a soft toy that makes my little girl feel like a superhero and like she can conquer the world. Even though we are in South Africa, you still sent us a buddy. We pray that you can continue helping children always
I love the idea behind this charity, helping young sick children be brave by giving them a handmade doll to encourage them. Wonderful cause to donate towards!
I nominated my 3 year old great niece who was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma in late November. Her family ( mom, dad, 18 month old baby brother) left their home in Alaska for treatment at Texas Childrens Hospital 6-1/2 months ago. She loves her doll! Her mom said
"Love this doll! The satin fabric on the bald head and legs is amazing."
Thank you for bringing a smile to her face!
My 3 year old daughter curruntly in remission from High risk leukemia recieved her beutiful beebrave buddy just few days after we requested it.It is so pretty and she loves it so much.
Tisa recieved her bee brave buddies shortly after filling out for it. It's her personal superhero! It's so adorable she falls asleep with it every night
I decided to donate fabric to Bee Brave Buddies to support the wonderful work they do for children with cancer. Bee Brave Buddies make dolls for boys or for girls suffering from treatment related hair loss. I hope if you are reading this that you will consider supporting this charity too, help support a child and bring a smile to face that really needs a happy moment.
Be Brave Buddies is an amazing outreach for children fighting cancer. They provide superhero dolls that actually look like the children who have lost hair from chemotherapy, and their web page features children from all over who are fighting the war against cancer. This is such a self esteem builder! My granddaughter has been cancer free for a year and a half, but she still has her Buddy.
I love the work that Bee Brave Buddies does. To see the faces of the children that receive their doll makes your heart melt. I am a survivor of breast cancer and to have a positive for those kids like the dolls when going through your chemo is everything. Keep up the good work. You are Heroes!
My friend’s grandmother started this organization. Mrs. Bernstein and her group of volunteers are wonderful, dedicated people working hard to bring comfort to children all around the world battling illnesses. This is a great foundation and I’m glad to be a part of it.
I am a childhood cancer survivor. Bee Brave Buddies was there to make me smile during some very hard times.
I am a preschool teacher and nominated one of our students currently battling leukemia. I have known of Bee Brave Buddies and the beautiful work they are doing to lift the spirits of young children for some time. So, I took the step for our student. Bee Brave Buddies responded the next business day to say that our buddy would arrive within the week. Rosanna Bernstein and her "ambassadors" are giving the gift of kindness, caring and support with such genuine intention and generosity.
Jack loves his bee Brave Buddy. Makes him feel safe. Takes him to his hospital and clinic visits for his chemo. These dolls are made wit so much love. Makes my boy feel special. Especially when he had no hair like his buddy. Helps the child not to feel different. Thanks to bee brave buddy. Keep up all the good work putting lots of smiles on all these kids faces xx
Our daughter Addie loves her Bee Brave buddy! She takes her to clinic visits to help her feel brave during her port access.
These dolls are made with tons of love and the details are so unique. Thank you for making Addie and other kids with Cancer smile and Bee Brave!
I was made aware of Bee Brave Buddies long before my son was diagnosed with cancer. Back then I thought it was “sweet”. Once my own child was diagnosed I was able to understand how therapeutic and instrumental Bee Brave Buddies can be for the recovery of all children battling life threatening diseases. Thank you to the Bee Brave Buddies Team and to the donors that keep this amazing charity running!
I am absolutely honored to be a doll ambassador for this amazing non profit. I feel so privileged to see firsthand the great joy this charity brings to children in treatment for Childhood Cancer and I would encourage everyone to support BeeBraveBuddies to help them to continue putting smiles on the faces of these little heroes fighting big battles!
Kayona loves her katie cuddles she was verry excited to be her mother thank you from our family god bless you for the smiles and courage you have givin kayona and others
This organization is based on the insight that it is universally easier to face a terrifying experience if you're with a friend.......especially a very brave friend who will never leave your side. BEE BRAVE BUDDIES provides the beautiful dolls to boys and girls in cancer treatment that become that perfect friend for the rough journey. The photos of the kids with their dolls say it all........sometimes a solution doesn't have to be big and costly, it just has to be perfect.
This organization has grown incredibly due to the non-stop passion of its sole founder, Rosanna Bernstein, who began by making each doll herself. BBB now delivers dolls internationally. However, Rosanna won't stop until she can provide a doll to every sick child who needs one. We should all support this organization to the fullest.
After our daughter, Brianna, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia our world was flipped upside down. She was 2 months shy of her 3rd birthday and had not spent much time in the doctors office. On day of diagnosis, she was admitted and we spent the next week at Children's of Alabama.
One of our fellow cancer friends had received a Bee Brave Buddy and posted a picture. It was so cute!!! I was so excited when Brianna's arrived. She loved her instantly and she has carried her to clinic visits and ED trips.
I am thankful for the Bee Brave Organization and have shared their site with each new parent that I met. These dolls give comfort and support to our babies!!!!
Our little boy Ben was diagnosed with Leukaemia in April 2015. Its a seriously tougb road for any child . Tge treatment can be so harsh. I linked on with Bee buddies through a friend Ben received the most beautiful blanket for Bee buddies that he brings to bed every night its such a comfort for him. I has just received a joy jar full of little goodies . Wow the smile on his face says it all really. To see a child that's going through cancer and the smile that the little face gives by such a kind gesture . We are so thankful. These people have the biggest hearts thinking of our kids it's means so much to us as a family . Tgank you bee buddies for all your kindness it will never be forgotten. xxxx
My son recieved a Brave Buddy doll in April 2017. He loves this doll and shows all his friends at MD Anderson. We are so thankful for the people who do so much for our kiddos fighting cancer. This is a great organization.
Thank you so much, Amanda. So happy Buddy Brave and your son are the Best of Friends now!
I can't thank this charity enough they have given my son a buddy to help him and keep him strong and Alfie will tell buddy all his worries and anything else he wants to
Emily, Happy that Alfie and Buddy Brave are snuggled up and telling little secrets! He is the bravest!
Bee Brave Buddies is an excellent organization. They helped us in many ways by sending us Bee Brave Buddy. My son was afraid to sleep in his room alone after coming home from the hospital but after receiving his Buddy, he had no fear and slept calmly through the nigh . It's an amazing program and thank you so much for your help!!
I was introduced to Rosanna Bernstein and Bee Brave Buddies through a mutual friend. My daughter is a cancer survivor and I know first-hand what it means to the children going through treatment to receive gifts such as a Bee Brave Buddie doll. Something tangible you can hold close to you when you are in a scary situation or a friend when all your other friends have left. Rosanna has a gift for creating a gorgeous product and helping out children who are sometimes forgotten while they undergo treatment away from the family and friends.
Bee Brave Buddies is an incredible organization. Rosanna Bernstein is taking her talent and passion of design and focusing her energy on creating Bee Brave Buddies for children suffering from cancer and/or other chronic illnesses. My daughter has an undiagnosed chronic illness and received Catie Cuddles from Bee Brave Buddies about 18 months ago...and she still sleeps with her! The intricate details, colors, and thoughtful design is genuine and from the heart. Thank you Rosanna, for providing my daughter and so many other sick children with strength, comfort and hope!
After reading of Rosanna and her love for the children that receive her lovely dolls, I was happy to be able to share some of my fabric with her to be a small part of the big effort she undertakes to bring joy to the little ones. Bee Brave is such an appropriate name for the organization. These children and families are not only in physical pain but emotional pain and they no doubt find themselves having to be more brave than they ever dreamed. It is wonderful to see that these dolls can be there tucked in beside them during the scariest of moments. Then they are still there being a friend when the days are brighter. I feel sure a little of Rosanna's heart is sewn into each one.
It has been my pleasure to work with Rosanna Bernstein with the Bee Brave Buddies! As a donor, I find that the joy of the children receiving these dolls promotes healing, faith, positive outlook and hope for the kids as well as the parents. The dolls are very well received by the kids and they are exceptionally constructed as each one is handmade by a local seamstress.
Please consider donating a few dollars to truly be an ambassador of good well for children with cancer! Many thanks to Rosanna Bernstein for her creativity, her foresight and her love for the kids!
I am a Pediatric Nurse and I saw the Bee Brave Buddies on a Facebook page that I follow. What a wonderful idea to make these dolls for children with cancer. I bought one for a friend who's daughter has Leukemia and I hope that it helps her through her journey!
I have been a volunteer with this nonprofit since its beginning and it is truly amazing. The founder, Rosanna Bernstein, is full of vision and energy and drive. The bald superhero dolls are adorable. And 100% of the money raised goes into making and distributing these dolls--there are no overheard costs and no salaries. I have seen firsthand the smiles and joy these dolls bring to very sick children. For them and their families Bee Brave Buddies are priceless.
I really love this non profit group. Rosanna Bernstein has done an amazing job giving to this organization for a wonderful cause. The dolls are so creative and this mission so thoughtful. It has been amazing with all the wonderful people who have embraced the concept. Please donate to help bring a smile to a child and their families who have gone through so much.
Bee Brave Buddies goal from the beginning has been to give as many children as possible, who are undergoing cancer treatment, a "Buddy" of their own. A buddy who could bring them some measure of comfort, as well as a whole lot of fun, at a time in their young lives when both are very much needed. Rosanna Bernstein is accomplishing this by making and giving her Bee Brave Buddies to hundreds of cancer struck children across the country.
She is one special lady!
Thank you, Kathy and thanks for all of your help!
Bee Brave Buddies sends a friendly messenger in the form of a boy or girl doll with a smile to an individual child who is battling cancer. These kids are struggling with pain and the anticipation of more pain and their doll becomes a beam of sunshine that they can actually grasp and which provides them with actual comfort. We want each child to be able to find that comfort and to get well. What a big help you are Bee Brave Buddies Corporation! Thank you for all the love you send with each beautifully crafted doll!
I've been following Bee Brave Buddies charity organization for some years now and I'm in love with them. I've seen how they started doing those adorable bold dolls that look just like those children in pain. I've seen videos when some kids receive their bee brave doll and their face just lits up. I think there is nothing better than doing a kid feel strength. To make them feel they are not alone in such tough battle. To make them feel deep in their heart they have their own brave buddie standing right next to them, ready to be hugged. To remember them, they are superheroes, they CAN win this.
Since the beginning until now, I've seen how much Bee Brave Buddies has grown up. LOTS of bold adorable dolls have been delivered, lots of children have been embraced in a hopeful hug and their parents get to get some happyness while seeing their kids with a smile on their face.
Thank you Bee Brave Buddies, for the bottom of my heart, thank you for all those kids you help to go thru such tough thing. For the smiles, for the strenght, for the love. GO GO GO!!
Amazing experience, my daughter was thrilled to receive her be brave doll in the mail! She takes it with her every time we leave the house. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my good news with other families struggling with childhood cancer.
Bee Brave Buddies is an amazing organization. My daughter received a Bestie Brave doll a few weeks after being diagnosed with Leukemia and it put a huge smile on her face as well as mine.

Be Brave! This is exactly what these precious dolls do for these precious children.
They offer a spark of joy and happiness at a time they need to "BE BRAVE"!
They are unique and are sent to the children without cost by the support given through the time and devotion of this organization.
As a 2 time cancer survivor, I know how great it feels to receive gifts from someone who cares while undergoing treatment. Bee Brave Buddies is an awesome charity that surprises children with huggable dolls who look like them. The smiles on the faces of these children really tells the story of what this charity is all about and that is why I support it 100%! I am a monthly donor and I sponsor a child through auto draft from my Paypal account. Won't you match or exceed my challenge for this wonderful organization?
Bee Brave Buddies endlessly and selflessly gives to those that need it the most, children who are fighting cancer. Each Bee Brave Buddy is made with love and gives the child comfort, something to snuggle with, and someone to tell their fears to. In other words, Bee Brave Buddies gives each child a friend....and there is nothing better. What a wonderful gift Bee Brave Buddies is :-D!
Lets start with this, I pretty much have the coolest job. I get to coordinate events and donations at Florida Hospital for Children and make kids smile every single day. However, I wouldn't be able to do this if it wasn't for our community donors. Our donors from the community is what helps us do our job and help us provide all of these amazing resources for our brave little kiddos. Bee Brave Buddies is such an amazing organization. They help remind our hospitalized children that they are still a child and help in the process of normalizing their environment. They allow these kids to have a "buddy" that they can use for play, cuddles, and even take back into surgery. These dolls really make a difference! Thank you for sending your "buddies" to help brighten our patients days.
Bee Brave Buddies is one of the most charitable organizations I've come across. The children truly love the dolls, and the founder, Rosanna Bernstein, truly loves what she does. I've seen photos of the children interacting with their dolls, and I've seen video testimony of how much the dolls have done for families going through one of their toughest tests in life.
Bee Brave Buddies is an amazing charitable organization with a heart dedicated to seriously ill children. Children who are facing childhood cancer are often all too familiar with the scary unknowns that accompany this horrid disease. Bee Brave Buddies provides them a companion to join them in their fight. Adorable, bald, and of course, very brave, these seemingly simple dolls are a precious companion to children who need a hand to hold, and a brave buddy by their side. Started by a cancer survivor, this amazing organization touches those who are most vulnerable, providing a measure of emotional comfort in the form of a lovable Bee Brave Buddy.
As a mom of a child with cancer seeing what she goes through on a daily basis be brave buddies were a great help. My daughter went with her doll the clinic and for tests and for scans and always said my Doll is here to help me .what a wonderful foundation this is keep up the good work
As a Trustee of The Awesome Foundation Miami we are proud to have funded Bee Brave Buddies under the expert and compassionate leadership of Rosanna Hope. In our view thir work is part of what makes Miami Awesome.
I have watched Bee Brave Buddies from its inception. During this time, I have seen numerous children with childhood cancer have not just smiles, but BIG BRAVE SMILES on their faces when they received their new best friend. These dolls join each one of the children giving them that new found hope and pleasure on a daily basis. This non profit is not just GREAT, it is a tremendous tribute to children who need a new best friend they can hug, cuddle, love and talk to. My motto is "Give a smile, Get a Smile" and Bee Brave Buddies does that for children worldwide and much more!
