The Foundation delivers gifts to thousands of children each year through the national Bear-Able Gift Program. Items such as board games, toys, crayons, coloring books, markers, video games, iTunes gift cards, puzzles, teddy bears, craft kits… all sorts of things that make children smile and laugh… are distributed to hospitals across the country. The Bear-Able Gift Program is the largest supplier of gifts to children with cancer in North America. In 2018, CCRF sent more than 16,000 toys to 8,011 children currently receiving cancer treatment in hospitals across the U.S.
The team at CCRF recognizes the importance of the mental health of the entire family at the time of cancer diagnosis and during treatment which led us to the expansion of the Bear-Able Gifts program. The program will now offer gifts for the entire family during their challenging times providing items such as, but not limited to, local donations of products, services, meals, games, lists of resources, and more!
