Chemo or Treatment Bears
Tuesday, May 12, 2015
You may know someone who’s going through a hard time or fighting a tough battle. Like it or not, as we get older friends and parents are affected, more heartbreaking even, kids.
If you want to let them know that you are thinking of them, or give them a bit of encouragement, our personalised teddy bears might be a great way of doing so.
We first came up with the idea when one of our customers designed a teddy bear for their friend. They mentioned that there were a lot of hours spent hanging around hospitals, and times when they felt scared or worried, and that they thought that a bear would give them encouragement and a bit of company.
Someone shared it on facebook, and before you know it, we were making a few a week.
It makes perfect sense really, people have always been comforted by teddy bears, someone to cuddle when you are low, or frightened. Treatment or chemo bears are just someone to keep them company throughout the journey. There are so many medical proceedures now where patients are waiting around for long periods of time now getting there chemo, radio or dialisis.
Here’s how it works.
Firstly you choose the bear that you like and a jumper to go on him. Then write what you want on the bears jumper and we’ll send it off to them with your thoughts on it.
The one in this picture is only an example, you may want to write something completely different, choose your own wording or design. If it's for a child, you can design it to suit what you think they will like. It's totally up to you and if you need a hand with designing, just let us know.
