Uplifting Families of Babies
Facing Life-Threatening Diagnoses

What We Do

Catherine Cares provides Heartbeat Bears and restaurant, fuel and grocery gift cards to families of babies who receive prenatal or newborn life-threatening diagnoses. In addition, we provide our heartbeat bears to families of children who receive a life-threatening diagnosis. We believe these small gestures centered on providing comfort and taking care of basic everyday needs help families in the midst of an extremely difficult struggle.

Catherine Cares is recognized by the IRS as a fully deductible, non-profit organization- section 501(c)(3).  


Buy A Bear, Give A Bear!

Individual Catherine Cares Heartbeat Bears can be purchased for numerous uses:

  • As a keepsake of a baby, child, family member or friend who is suffering from a life threatening diagnosis.
  • To record a donor’s heartbeat.
  • To share uplifting news with loved ones.
  • To send a sweet message to out of town grandchildren or nieces/ nephews.
  • Or any other idea one might have to utilize the special capabilities of our Heartbeat Bears.

When buying an individual Heartbeat Bear, you are also providing a Heartbeat Bear to a family whose baby received a life threatening diagnosis. Thank you for uplifting the families we serve.
