JOE JOE BEAR FOUNDATION
A little bit different than most charities. Joe Joe Bear Foundation focuses on delivering around the clock comfort to for children facing life threatening illness by providing them with new teddy bears. All our efforts are dependent on the help and support we receive from the community. Will you please consider joining our mission?
The Joe Joe Bear Foundation was created in memory of Joseph David Ordaz who passed away on March 10, 2009 from Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, he was 24. Joe had a bone marrow transplant on July 17, 2008 that the doctors thought would be successful.
However on December 3, 2008 he found out the cancer was back. Joe was undergoing treatment to prepare for a second transplant when he asked for a teddy bear to hold while he was alone so that he could feel like we were with him always. Joe was so full of life and had a smile that would light up a room whenever he entered. He was always in good spirits and always tried to make people smile, he is deeply missed.
For Joe! For all!
The charity was created to keep Joe’s memory alive and to help others in the same situation. It saddened him to hear the children crying at night in the hospital when they were alone and scared, he would say, “I wish I could help comfort the sick children.”
