ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Catherine Cares, an organization that seeks to lift up families of children receiving devastating diagnoses, recently launched a new service. Build-A-Bear Heartbeat Bears will soon available at hospital partners of Catherine Cares.
Co-Founders Wayne and Lauren Turley know how special it is to hear the heartbeat of a lost loved one as they lost their precious baby girl Catherine in 2014.
When a baby is given a life-threatening prenatal diagnosis, the family receives the sound of their baby`s heartbeat recorded within a Catherine Cares Heartbeat Bear. Siblings and families can have that connection with their lost brother or sister to treasure forever.
The cost of a Heartbeat bear is $15. For every bear purchased, you’re also giving a bear to a family in need.
