Product Description

Designed by Carol Cramer, Ruby and Rufus are fully-costumed floppy beanbag bears with heart appliques to indicate blood testing and insulin injection areas to help educate and comfort patients newly diagnosed with diabetes. "Since they were first designed, the Rufus and Ruby bears have made a real difference to families affected by diabetes-they are an excellent tool for helping to explain the rigorous daily demands of the disease to children and adults alike," said Peter Van Etten, President and CEO of JDRF. "We are so appreciative to Russ Berrie and Company for this opportunity and we sincerely thank them for their ongoing support of JDRF and our quest to find a cure." A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's (JDRF) ongoing efforts to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes, a chronic, incurable disease which affects more than one million Americans.
