A New Idea & A New Start

What if there were a place where all kids with special needs, chronic illnesses or terminal illnesses could meet? It would be a virtual place where kids could play games, either by themselves or with other kids who may be in a hospital far across the country. What if kids could write stories and other kids could read them? What if kids could ask questions and Angel could answer them? This is what white bear town will be, with your help and a little help from our friends.

Welcome to White Bear Town.

By the way, that’s Jacob the Librarian and Marc the Music Director playing chess. Come in and meet some of the other folk that live in White Bear Town.

So who is White Bear? That’s me, of course. I’m perfectly stuffed teddy bear with a grand idea. Once I lived at Shriner’s Hospital. Then I met Angel and went home with her. We’ve been together ever since. She was born with a group of birth defects known as VACTERL association (also VATER association). She has had numerous surgeries including a kidney transplant. Our goal is to let children everywhere know that they are not alone, especially those with chronic illness, disabilities and challenges. Angel is the one who spreads her sunshine, joy and kindness in the world and I come along for support and to add a little magic whenever I am needed.

 Just use your imagination and you will see that when you need me, with you is where I’ll be.

We know sometimes it is hard being different. Remember, being different is what makes every child unique and special.  We also know sometimes it is nice to just feel like every other kid.  We want White Bear Town to be that place. Come on in, take a look around and let us know what you think.
We can help you discuss your fears, ask questions and help your parents and loved ones answer them. 
By the way, I bet you didn’t know that Angel and I are in our very first book. Someday there will be a whole series created for young readers who have serious illness or other challenges. These books are also for siblings, family and friends. Follow our adventures and join the fun.  Our first book, White Bear’s Big Adventure is available online at amazon.
