Give Hope To Children With Cancer With Extended Stay America’s #GiveHope Bear @extendedstay #ad
It is the four words no parent ever wants to hear “Your child has cancer” and yet for thousands of families, this is our reality.
Suddenly your world, stops, you find yourself not being able to breathe much less process a thought and life as you know ceases to exist and suddenly everything your world becomes saving your child. For us, it struck our home when my daughter was 12 with thyroid cancer. We battled the demon and tried to put the pieces of our life, and hers back together and slowly but surely the battle was won-or so we thought until we heard the doctor utter those dreaded words once again when she was in high school only to discover that this time, it was lung cancer that would attack and ravaged her body and try to control her life and now more than 20 years later, the battle rages on, but as long as she lives to fight another day, we are indeed winning the battle. Each year, over 10,000 children under the age of 15 are diagnosed with cancer. It’s a diagnosis that can turn a family’s life upside down
Being in the hospital is something no one should have to experience, least of all your child and no one knows that better thank our friends at Extended Stay America. And now they are making giving those children who battle this disease a little piece of comfort and hope in the form of Hope Bear. In an effort to bring awareness to the issue, Extended Stay America is introducing Hope.
Hope is a cuddly symbol of kindness and comfort. Extended Stay America – through the support of their guests – is committing to provide 10,000 Hope bears to children’s hospitals throughout America with the simple goal of bringing a smile to the face of a child battling cancer and now you can give Hope to a child with cancer! For just $10, a Hope bear can be delivered to a child battling cancer. Working with the American Cancer Society®, Extended Stay America will provide bears to children’s hospitals nationwide starting in September 2017.
For those who would like to bring Hope home to a friend, family member or loved one, Hope can be ordered and delivered to your home for just $19.99. For each Hope bear purchased, Extended Stay America will donate $5.00 to the American Cancer Society toward pediatric cancer research.
