Founded by Kathleen A. Casey in memory of her son, Barrett “Bear Krupa, who died after a courageous five-and-a-half year battle with Wilms Tumor, a pediatric cancer, Bear Necessities supports those whose lives have been touched by pediatric cancer. For 30 years, our mission has never wavered. We are dedicated to discovering a cure for this devastating disease, while bringing meaningful experiences to children so they can rediscover their childhood.
Our small but mighty team is committed to bringing hope and joy into children and families’ lives, knowing it will make a significant difference–today and for years to come.
