Why We Designed The Hope Bear
Helping people facing cancer takes more than medicine. It is part of every Teddy Bear's nature to give you hugs when needed, provide courage when you need strength, and dry your tears with warm smiles. This is why Vermont Teddy Bear has partnered with the American Cancer Society on our 15" Hope Bear. Our Hope Bear not only gives the best hugs but takes the extra step of providing support and raising awareness for breast cancer recovery.
Helping to Support Breast Cancer Recovery
20% of every sale is donated to the American Cancer Society Reach To Recovery® program. Reach To Recovery volunteers provide one-on-one support to those diagnosed with breast cancer.
"Reach to Recovery is an amazing program. ACS provided me with a mentor who had the same breast cancer diagnosis that I did. She gave me the support I needed. "
- Denise, Reach To Recovery Volunteer
The Power of Pink
With its soft pink fur and premium pink satin bow our Hope Bear represents the iconic pink ribbon that has become the symbol for breast cancer support and awareness.
