Recently several board members and friends of Project Ed Bear were invited to tour the ward at Akron Children's hospital. We got to take a peek at some of the wonderful things project Ed Bear provides for the kids.
I had my husband Matt take a few pictures with his iphone (so they arent the best pictures) as we toured and will show you a peek from time to time.
Today we will be looking at the Outpatient area where the children come in to have their chemo.
Each room is outfitted with toys, televisions and brightly colored artwork. (Some created by the kids while at Camp Chops)
This for example is the Princess Room:
And another treatment room: You can see more toys here as well
The tv in each treatment room also has a DVD player. The patients have access to a complete library of DVDs provided by Project Ed Bear
They also have access to board games as well. Here is a small board game stash (the larger stash in in the Inpatient area)
and activity packs
The outpatient area is also decorated with several awesome murals. All of them have a bear hiding somewhere in the mural. This was my favorite Bear-nie Kosar
I hope you've enjoyed seeing just a small part of how the money raised by Project Ed Bear provides comforts and needs to the children. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned to see the Inpatient area, the Teen Room, the PLAY room and the of course the bear cave.
