The Joe Joe Bear Foundation is a Texas-based charity that provides teddy bears to children with life-threatening illnesses in 10 Houston area hospitals and hospices. In 2009 The founders Godson was in the Hospital with Leukemia and asked her for a teddy bear so he could have comfort when she wasn’t there. He had that teddy bear with him until he passed away. His bear's name was Joe Joe Bear and the foundation is in Memory of Joe, her godson. Many people donate money to cancer research but not to the emotional well being of the cancer patient. Many of the sick children Joe Joe Bear services do not live long enough to see a cure.
Joe Joe Bear provides comfort to these children with a teddy bear. This special bear becomes a friend who will be with them when they are scared and alone, helping reduce stress. The bears can go places their parents cannot; testing and surgery to name a few. In the past 9 years over 29,000 bears have been given to critically ill children.
