Words cannot begin to express the importance of Teddy Bears Anonymous for sick children. As a Child Life Specialist at the Regina General Hospital I see first hand the difference these special bears bring to the children's hospital experience. A sense of comfort, normalcy & peace is brought to the child when receiving one of the bears and after this their hospital experience is literally changed forever.
A frightening uncertain hospital visit can be changed into a much more comforting, positive experience.
Thank you for your continued support & your dedication to making a difference within the life of a child in the hospital.
I work in Admitting at the Regina Pasqua Hospital. I ' am able to give the teddy bears to the young children that come in through the Emergency Department or for any other appointment in the Hospital. I see the smiles on their faces when we hand them a teddy bear and would like to say thank you for giving us the opportunity to do so. This program is so wonderful and we are grateful for having the program in our hospital. Your teddy bears for sick children program continues to touch so many lives. Teddy Bears Anonymous is a fantastic charity for our sick children.
I work at the Pasqua Hospital Eye centre. I have seen many young children come up to our ward carrying a teddy bear which they received from the Admitting Department. Within the last several months we have had to remove all the toys and books from our floor due to H1N1 pandemic. These teddy bears are tightly under their little arms and is a Huge Ice breaker for the staff to talk to the children about their new little friends.
When a child is admitted into hospital they receive the "gift" of a new teddy bear from Teddy Bears Anonymous. These are just a few of the testimonials we receive.
Teddy Bears Anonymous has eleven hospitals and 20 EMS / first responders in Saskatchewan who belong to the teddy bears for sick children program.
