Bear Cottage is one of the many partners supported by Hyundai Help for Kids.

An initiative of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Bear Cottage provides respite and palliative care for children with life-limiting illnesses, and their families.
Established in 2001, entirely through community support, at a cost of $10 million, it is a warm, welcoming place, designed to feel as removed from the hospital environment as possible, and to provide a place for families – many of whom have cared for their sick children around the clock.

As a proud partner of Bear Cottage and the Child Life Therapy program, Help for Hyundai Kids recently commissioned and shared a very special video. The inspirational Murname family and their son Michael have also been supported by other Hyundai Help for Kids partners such as Make-A-Wish AustraliaClown Doctors and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

There is no cost to the families who rely on care and support at Bear Cottage. With operating costs of $4 million per year, the generosity of community and corporate support is crucial for them to reach this target annually.
