DS Hope | Custom handmade teddy bear on a mission to raise Dravet Syndrome Awareness
DS Hope Bear is a custom teddy bear on a mission to raise awareness for Dravet Syndrome and also to be a special friend to children affected by this debilitating syndrome. Dravet Syndrome is a rare and catastrophic form of epilepsy that starts very early in a child's life. These children have associated conditions that require ongoing treatment and are at higher risk of SUDEP (sudden unexplained death in epilepsy).
DS Hope Bear shows off a number of shades of purple. Made of the softest lavender fur, the bear has a two colored butterfly embroidered onto his chest as well as the words "Dravet Tiger" He has darker purple accents and nose and a multi-colored neck braid* in lavender, purple and white. He is 16 inches tall and his arms and legs are jointed so he can sit by himself. Dravet Bear consists of safety joints, eyes and nose and is metal free.
The right foot can be personalized with a name.
*Button on neckwear must be removed before giving the bear to a small child.
