AHG ARE SUPPORTING BEAR COTTAGE
Who is Bear Cottage ?
Bear Cottage is a medically-supported ‘home away from home’, offering families a physical and emotional break from the stress of caring for a terminally-ill child. It is also a peaceful haven they can come to when the end of their child’s life is near.
At Bear Cottage they see Superheroes every day – the nurses and volunteers who provide outstanding care and immeasurable comfort, the families who keep finding strength in the face of adversity and our brave patients, for whom every day is a battle against the odds. In honour of these heroes Bear Cottage started Superhero month.
It costs over $3 million to keep Bear Cottage’s doors open each year. Your support will ensure Bear Cottage is able to help to continue to provide support, respite and end-of-life care for our little superheroes.

What is Superhero Week?
Bear Cottage are holding Superhero Week to help raise much needed funds to enable the continuing support of respite and end-of-life care for the families of kids with terminal illnesses.
Bear Cottage has a target to raise $120,000 in 2017 - so please get involved! Be a Superhero for the day, because life is for living.
