I cried happy tears seeing this bear, I brought it while in hospital with my 3 week old son getting his Stoma, I live in New Zealand I knew it would take a while to arrive but the quality, the meaning, the happiness I hope it brings him throughout his future with his ostomy means the world! Not only a wonderful meaningful bear, but so cute and so soft and the book alongside it just adds the icing to the cake ❤️

I don’t know how you do it, but you have made one of the cutest most comfortable and cozy/soft teddy bears I have ever held in my hands. Then on top of it, you make one which represents and brings comfort and joy to people who have battled and suffered through excruciating pain. Absolutely 200/100 stars all day every day. Oh, and this is a gift for a friend of mine, and the only other person besides myself and one other whom I’ve met with an Ostomy. She is my girlfriends 2nd mom and she is a wonderful person who is somewhat new to this life. But of course I had to check it out for myself before giving it to her and I was amazed. If I was a teddy bear kinda guy, I would, and might even still, get one of these “for my gf” so I can cuddle it in bed. I’m not ashamed to admit that I would love that. Thank you so much!

Dawnette's Ostomy Bear and Awesome Ollie book were recommended from an ostomy support group I had joined in order to prepare myself for my ostomy surgery. I thought these would be great tools to use in order to prepare my children for my operation. Not only was the bear beautiful and extremely soft and the book adorable and a great teaching tool, but these items also arrived before the earliest estimated arrival date. Dawnette was prompt in her response after I messaged her, and the handwritten thank you card she included in my package was so thoughtful. My children absolutely love reading the book and snuggling Ollie. Not only am I one happy customer, but I also highly recommend ordering the bear and book combo to anyone who is facing ostomy surgery (especially if they have children or if a child is facing this surgery).

Ollie Bear is so soft and cuddly, very friendly vibe with him….makes a nice sounding board for an ostomy patient…glad I bought and donated 2 for 2 kids in hospital and one for myself, a senior ostomy patient 😊

This book exceeded expectations, I love the way the story is written. Explains about the discomfort before having a stoma and how it helps. Is amazing. Delivery was spot on and thankyou so much for making a hard topic easier.

I bought this to teach my toddler about my ileostomy surgery that I just got. I also took my bear with me to the hospital (yes, I’m 25 years old). It helped with get through major complications with my surgery. I was able to hold on to my bear tight as I was being poked on constantly. I am now home after 11 days in the hospital, when it should have only been 4. I sleep with my bear still and it’s just a reminder that I can tackle anything that comes my way. He’s super soft and I’m beyond happy that I got him before surgery. He was with me through everything. This would be an amazing gift for anyone getting an ostomy, regardless of age. The book is beyond cute. It brought me joy reading it and I’m happy to have it to read to my toddler.
October 2016, I gifted 8 teddy bears with red button stomas and velcro pouches to the WOCN's at my local children's hospital. They promised to give the bears to their pediatric Ostomy Patients. 24 months later, 5,000 bears had been gifted through 16 children's hospitals in the United States. Nurses across the country requested a book to go with the ostomy bears. A book to explain ostomy surgery and recovery to children. Pediatric WOCN's and Child Life Specialists consulted on the creation of the rhyming Awesome Ollie Book. The book is also available on Kindle through Amazon.
I underwent my own permanent ostomy surgery in December of 2015. This surgery gave me my life back! I swim, surf, travel, run, hike, bike and ride rollercoasters. I serve as President for one of the largest Ostomy Support groups in the United States, teach Ostomy 101 patient lifestyle classes at the University of California Medical Center and make ostomy teddy bears.
