Gift of a Bear Program helps Mott patients

C.S. Mott Children's and Women's Hospital is launching the Gift of a Bear Program to help comfort young patients and raise money for families in need. Supporters can help the healing of a Mott child by purchasing a teddy bear outfitted in an "M Go Blue for Mott" T-shirt for $25. Proceeds benefit the Family Hope Fund, established to help families in which a child's illness has created financial hardships or other types of challenges. Money from the Family Hope Fund can buy food, pay a house payment or utility bills. To purchase a bear or for more information about other ways to benefit Mott children, contact Carol McTaggart at 734-998-6069 or e-mail
