Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a national organization founded in 1992 and has been actively contributing to children stricken with cancer. Its’ mission to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it is supported through 2 main  programs:

Bear Hugs Program:  Supports cancer patients (ages 0 –19), as well as their immediate families, that face the many challenges that accompany the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric cancer. Our outreach serves both in state and out of state children that are being treated at one of the nine major Chicago area hospitals with pediatric oncology departments. A Bear Hug is a customized experience that brightens the life of a child going through cancer. The Bear Hugs Program also provides immediate family support for financial burden and essential needs.

Bear Discoveries: Each year, medical research grants are awarded nationwide primarily to junior investigative researchers who make meaningful advancements and discoveries towards finding a cure and therapies for various types of pediatric cancer.
