Courage Lion Program
Duffy the Lion is a tangible object that children can hug and have. Duffy has a pocket where they can place a note, picture or something special to them. Duffy is designed to help children going through critical illness, trauma, death of a loved one, or any other significant family crisis.
The Courage Lion Program helps facilitate communication, gives hope, and bolsters courage. The Courage Lions are handed out on a case by case basis.
