Children's Cancer Recovery

Nearly 3,000 Children Receive Toys

New Oxford, PA — May 22, 2017 —The continued generosity of individuals and corporations across the United States has allowed the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation’s (CCRF) Bear-Able Gift Program, to put smiles on the faces of children living with cancer. Those smiles help to make the life of a child with cancer more bearable and hopeful while receiving treatment.

During the 2nd quarter, the Bear-Able Gift Program delivered 8,745 toys and gifts to 32 hospitals across the country to help brighten the lives of 2,915 children living with cancer. Volunteers from a local family, Girl Scout Troop 80093, GFWC Mechanicsburg, and Fulton Bank assisted the CCRF staff in packing and shipping each Bear-Able Gift!

The Bear-Able Gift Program distributes items such as games, toys, crayons, coloring books, video games, puzzles, books and teddy bears — all kinds of things that make children smile — to hospitals and oncology centers across the country. The program makes CCRF the largest supplier of gifts to children in North America who have cancer. It relies solely on donations of new and unwrapped toys.

“The continued generosity of individuals and corporations throughout the country is helping put smiles on the faces of boys and girls bravely battling cancer,” said Greg Anderson, founder of Harrisburg, PA-based CCRF. “That support has enabled us to continue to increase the number of children we touch through our Bear-Able Gifts program, and for that, we are deeply appreciative.”

There are a number of ways in which individuals and businesses can help support CCRF’s Bear-Able Gift Program; they include sponsoring a toy drive or raising or donating funds.
