Sojourn Bear™, Inc. is an organization founded by Jan Burlew, who is a cancer survivor living in Seminole, FL.

Sojourn Bears are soft, cuddly and colorful bears made with love by caring volunteers.

Sojourn Bears primary mission is to make cancer bear-able by providing inspiration and comfort to adult cancer patients through the distribution of original hand-made teddy bears. Its secondary mission is to offer opportunities to others for healing and nurturing through participation in our program.
Each bear is given a name by the volunteers and when given to a
cancer patient/survivor is accompanied by the following:

This bear is given as a sign of love and understanding from one cancer patient to another. To sojourn is to stay for a time or reside temporarily. It's our hope and prayers that your time with cancer is a short sojourn with a happy, fruitful ending. We've learned that hugging is the perfect cure for whatever ails you. At least if it doesn't make you well, just seeing or hugging a teddy invokes a feeling of warmth, security and whimsy in the hearts of all ages. We encourage you to hug your Sojourn Bear often. It will take in your joys and your fears.
Our love and bears hugs are with you.
