One of Many Legacies

In 2013 20 month old Megan Dugan died suddenly. Her parents set up a Teddy Bear Legacy and over the next 8 months, friends and relatives donated more than 700 teddy bears to children in UNM Children’s Hospital in New Mexico. Those cuddly teddy bears brought smiles to the faces of all those hospitalized children and they helped all the people who donated them cope a little bit better with the grief of Megan’s loss.


Who Gets The Bears?

Children in the hospital. Simple as that.

Each hospital has a Child Life Director and the Director and staff decides which child receives a bear and when. Their biggest problem is there are way more children in need than there are teddy bears available to give.
