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

Rating: 5 stars  

I had been given a call for my son to receive a Bear Hug from Bear Necessities. With talking about what would be good for him to have, we received a toddler bed frame, pirate bed sheets, and a treasure chest toy chest for my 2yr old who had been diagnosed with a Wilm's Tumor stage 2 and was going through chemotherapy. This far exceeded what I had thought would be given to us, and it was just what my son needed at the time. He was able to go to his comfy bed all by himself instead of being lifted into the crib I had for him; and he could pick up toys easy with them all fitting in a toy chest, so it was fun for him to play and didn't wear him out to pick up after his treatment days. Bear Necessities is great!
