Help Give Our Kids Another Tomorrow.

Be a member of TEAM BEAR THE CHALLENGE and raise money to help in the battle against pediatric cancer.

Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation's mission is to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it. During the foundation's 14-year history, over 80% of our revenue has supported the mission through its programs and services.

Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation traces its beginnings to 1992 in the hospital room of a little boy named Barrett 'Bear' Krupa. While undergoing treatment for Wilms Tumor, 'Bear' and his family witnessed firsthand the needs of other patients and their families, understood the need for additional support services within pediatric oncology facilities and became keenly aware of the need for research in the field of pediatric cancer. More often than not, 'Bear' expressed more concern for the happiness and comfort of other pediatric cancer patients than he did for himself. It was through these experiences that he and his mother, Kathleen Casey, decided to form a foundation aimed at helping others, just before his death in the winer of 1993.

Cancer knows no ethnic, economic, geographic, or religious borders however, a child should never have to endure this devastating disease. So please become a partner by supporting or joining Team Bear The Challenge
