Children's Journal and Stuffed Animal

 

 

This 122 page journal is a keepsake for your child's cancer journey. Filled with inspirational drawings of our mascot "Cozy the Port-a-Cat," the Cozy Cares Journal encourages children to draw strength from themselves and from those around them.

 

Writing prompts throughout the book were designed to help children cope during their diagnosis and treatment and to express their thoughts and feelings during this difficult time. Examples of writing prompts include: " I am special because ..." or  " When I'm bored in the hospital my family and I ..." or  " When I'm feeling sad it helps to ..."

The Cozy Cares Journal also includes word-find and drawing activities.


While it is a helpful tool for the child undergoing treatment, this journal is also a cherished treasure for family and friends, who can read it and experience the cancer journey through the thoughts and words of a child.

 

 

We are providing this resource FREE OF CHARGE to children with cancer. Each child will receive ONE copy of the Cozy Cares Journal and a cuddly stuffed "Cozy the Port-a-Cat" to accompany him/ her to the doctor's office, hospital, grocery store,  and everywhere in between!

"Cozy the Port-a-Cat"

This soft stuffed animal has been custom designed by ACCO for children with cancer. Embroidered above the cat's heart is the gold ribbon symbol for childhood cancer, and embroidered on the bottom of the cat's foot is ACCO's logo.

 

Cozy has been specially designed to be a teaching tool and a companion for children before, during, and after cancer treatment.  Available in two sizes, Cozy has strategically-placed patches that represent port access, bone marrow aspirate, spinal tap, gastrostomy tube (g-tube), and a hand IV. With Cozy as a guide, a child can see where a particular procedure will take place, and he or she can even watch Cozy have the procedure first! This can greatly ease anxiety and fear related to certain aspects of treatment. Cozy is also great just for hugging and keeping your child company!

 

Cozy is soft, snuggly, and FREE to all children with cancer.  All orders for the Cozy Cares Journal will include "Cozy the Port-a-Cat," but Cozy can also be requested separately from the journal.
