Companion Dolls for children impacted by cancer

About Bravery Buddies

Bravery Buddies are a collection of dolls for children who are either battling cancer or who have a loved one with cancer.

These special dolls send the message “you are not alone”. They are inclusive dolls for both boys and girls of different ethnicities created to offer comfort and bring a glimmer of joy to the lives of children affected by cancer.

The Bravery Buddies have no hair, just like a lot of children who are battling cancer. The aim is for the dolls’ physical appearance to help sick kids feel like they’ve got an empathetic friend on their side. To be able to look at their special friend and think, “Hey, you’re just like me.” Children are able to form a bond with their dolls, to share the experience of cancer – to be a friend to them when they need one most.

GOALS FOR 2021 & BEYOND

GOAL 5%

We currently have approximately 1900 dolls produced and awaiting sponsorship for donation. Unfortunately, creating our lovely little buddies is not a cheap endeavour, and we rely on the generosity of sponsors to make it all possible and to allow us to keep pruducing these very special little dolls. We are currently at 5% of our funding goal for 2021. If you would like to sponsor a buddy and leave your own personal message for an inspirational little cancer warrior please do so here!

Our fundraising mission is an ongoing one, and by the end of 2021 it is our aim to have all 2000 dolls distributed and the next round of dolls in production. We would love to see Bravery Buddies in hospitals all over Australia and the world and wherever they are needed to lift the spirits of children impacted by cancer.

What else is in the works for Bravery Buddies?

We have huge plans for the future, including worldwide distrubtion and a Bravery Buddies educational program.

Founded by someone who’s been there!

My name is Tegan – I’m the founder of Bravery Buddies. I’m also an 18 year cancer survivor and ongoing fighter! I have Leukaemia and was diagnosed as a child. I know first hand how cancer diagnosis impacts the life of a child, in so many ways beyond the physical and medical aspects of the condition. Bravery Buddies was born out of passion and experience and an overwhelming need to make a positive impact in the lives of young cancer warriors.
