Announcing our newest service, Build-A-Bear heartbeat bears!

View the video below on the history and impact Catherine Cares is making!

Catherine Cares is recognized by the IRS as a fully deductible, non-profit organization- section 501(c)(3).  We provide heartbeat bears, restaurant and fuel gift cards, as well as other tangible items, to families and women who receive devastating news about their baby, living or unborn. We believe these small gestures centered on taking care of basic everyday needs will help families in the midst of a difficult struggle.

Catherine Cares is our daughter’s, Catherine Marie’s, legacy. At 20 weeks gestation, Catherine was diagnosed with Trisomy 18, a third 18th chromosome. Knowing the long life we planned with our sweet little girl was not meant to be, we have taken great comfort in ensuring Catherine’s short life will help other families dealing with devastating diagnoses.
