From Founder Marcella Johnson:  "The Comfort Cub is a specially weighted therapeutic teddy bear intended for those who have experienced the loss of a child. Each Comfort Cub comes with a personal handwritten letter from me attached to the cub's neck.

We now help those who have suffered the loss of a loved one be they a child, an adult, and even the loss of a beloved pet who has become part of the family. The Comfort Cub provides a lasting hug you can experience anywhere, anytime.
