Family Testimonials

Grateful families

The Kids' Cancer Project bears are a furry friend for kids in hospital. Hear from grateful children and their families who received bears as a cuddly companion during their treatment.

Our little lady was lucky enough to receive one of these bears. She absolutely loves it and it's now her go to teddy when she has floor time. She loves to chew on the silicone chew toys and shake the flower rattle.
We've named our bear Belinda after the lovely nurse who gave it to her.

My son Parker has received a couple of teddies from the Kids Cancer Project while receiving his chemotherapy or after waking up from procedures. These treatments are not easy but these special bears give him comfort and gives our family hope as every time we see one we know that we are one step closer to curing cancer.

Thank you for all that you do! Our sweet Ollie had his last chemo for his intense treatment block last week and ‘Chef Bear’ as he’s now been named was waiting for him when we got there. With nearly three years of treatment to go, this was a mini milestone but one made very special by your beautiful bear who has been given so much love since he came home with us.

My son had to stay in hospital for a few nights when he was about 11 months old and was given this teddy bear by one of the nurses and he hasn’t slept without it since - it's been 8 years now! Our family will be forever grateful for our teddy and how he has helped our little man throughout the years.

Our daughter was given one from the nurses during her stay and the joy and courage /strength it gave her was priceless. They were inseparable. We donated 2 a few months ago and feel so blessed that it brings a smile through their journey. Please buy a teddy.

This is my granddaughter Ciara with the two teddies she received during her many stays in hospital receiving treatments. She is at home now and thankfully on the mend. It was a tough time seeing her go through this but the whole team have just been amazing. She still loves her bears and will always remember the joy and comfort they brought to her throughout her treatments. Thank you seems so inadequate for the love and care shown to her and our family but thank you. I hope these bears continue to help comfort and bring a smile to kids in hospital.

Hello, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for our beautiful teddy (aka Ted). He has been everywhere with us over the last year and it was only fitting he was in this year’s Christmas photos 😂. My littlest love received him from Northam Regional hospital here in WA. I hope these photos bring a smile to your face the way Ted brings a smile to Emmy's. Thank you 🙏

My husband and I have donated a different bear to a different hospital every month since I was diagnosed with lung cancer in October 2020. It breaks my heart what kids have to go through with cancer 😔. I have now asked my five grandchildren to choose a bear to donate so we’re ready to donate for the next five months 👏🏼.
