Bear has a brain tumor :(

Bear Cottingham has a brain tumor, and we're wanting to raise money to help his parents, Jen and Thomas. Extra money will help ease their stress while Jen isn't able to work, as well as to help with hotel rooms for the grandparents, gas money for back and forth trips to Children's Mercy, babysitters for their other 4 children, etc. Bear is in the hospital awaiting chemo currently, and anything you can do will help! The last thing this family needs to deal with is worrying about finances: having some extra money will help them be able to fully focus on their family, while they get Bear taken care of.
