Our Wonderful Team
Vice Chair/ Treasurer
My mom, Nana to Brooks and my rock! She has been so supportive with my bears from the beginning. She is the best mom a daughter can ask for.
Laurin is my best friend from Denver, Co. We met in 2020 on an online mom group when I was first pregnant with my first child. We helped me tremendously with my loss and just was there for me through out my journey and my pregnancy with Brooks. Since having Brooks, she has had 3 losses... She advocates so much for miscarriage awareness and supports us! Grateful to have Laurin on the team even though it's long distance!
I met Chris in 2016 when I worked at Akron Children's Hospital as a Special Event planner. We helped coordinate a Teddy Bear Motorcycle ride for the kids here at Childrens.
We've kept in touch, and I recently found that he and his wife, Stephanie, lost a child and this mission is close to his heart.
Chis is such a kind-hearted guy and we are so glad to have him!
Ximena is one of my Spanish interpreters at Akron Childrens. She has been so supportive and positive of our organization from the very beginning! We are so grateful to have her support and guidance!
Muchas Gracias Ximena!
Susan is the best Mother-in-Law a girl can ask for! Supportive, kind and such a wonderful nana to Brooks and her other grandkids! She was a Special Needs teacher at Jackson Local Schools and just loves children and helping others.
Thank you Susan!
Pedro Chavez (PJ)
PJ is the kindest man. He's the Chaplaincy director at Cleveland Clinic Mercy Hospital and just loves our organization. He and his wife had 7 losses in between their children. We are so grateful to PJ for his advocacy of our bears in the hospital and his heart for our mission.
