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

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 8 years old. When we were not sure if he would see his 9th birthday, Bear Necessities arranged a McDonald's party for him and a couple of his friends in the hospital. When my son was released from the hospital they had tickets for the whole family to see the Chicago Bears and a signed Brian Urlacher jersey for Josh. The thing I love the most about Bear Necessities is that they also are trying to find a cure for pediatric cancer, treating the spirit through the small miracle program and funding research to cure the cause.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way they have helped my son and they seen the grants they have give to help find a cure for pediatric cancer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try and help them reach more children and doctors.

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

the people

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

friendly and helpfull

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

fund more research to help more than 10,000 kids that will be diagnosed with cancer this year.

Ways to make it better...

I had been more involved.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

don't know.
