  • Photo Gallery By Jeannie Blaylock First Coast News Thanks to everyone who helped us collect bears for chemotherapy patients. It's just amazing how the project turned out. When we first started, I had a secret goal in my head. I didn't want to say it on the news because the project was brand new and you never know what response you'll get. My secret goal was 3,000 bears. As of May 2007, we have more than 33,000 bears! Please take time to watch our final story and you'll see the joy each bear brings to a cancer patient. We had enough bears to share with Hospice patients, as well. Our 2007 drive is technically over. If you still have bears you've already collected please bring them to the TV station. We are considering doing this drive again next year. So if you haven't started your collection, you may want to wait. If you'd like to share photos of your bear drive, we'd love to put them on our website. Please e-mail them to me with the word "bear" on the subject line. Please make sure you put only one photo in each attachment. Great job, everybody! Related article:
