The Wendy Bear Patient Assistance Program is named in memory of the wife of hockey legend Darryl Sittler, a long-time supporter of Colon Cancer Canada. Wendy was instrumental in assisting with raising awareness and funds for Colon Cancer Canada before her passing in 2002. She wanted to ensure that anyone diagnosed with cancer would have the necessary support to help them manage their life with this disease. It is in her memory that the Wendy Bear was created with 100% of the proceeds of the bear going directly to support palliative care patients in need of financial assistance.
As of May 17, 2016 we are no longer accepting Wendy Bear Applications for 2016. We are proud to announce that we helped 60 palliative patients and are looking forward to helping more in 2017.
