Review for Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA
I was introduced to this charity virtually at it's inception by a friend. My love for children is why I do any type of charity work, especially those fighting life threatening illnesses such as cancer. Reading the note from Barrett "Bear" Krupa about this foundation for the first time made it "REAL" for me. At that moment I knew this child was special, and then I realized his family, friends and supporters were special, too! Selfless giving is a trait too few people understand in this world. This year my teenage son joined me at one of the largest fundraiser events, the Bear Tie Ball. He was moved the the experience and will be supporting another event later this month with me. Whenever I get the opportunity to share the beautiful story of how this foundation began, I do!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
assisting with delivery of a small miracle for a little girl who just wanted to be a Yellow Princess! It was a magical moment shared by a small group of family and friends. Her smile will never be forgotten.
