This project is dedicated to the memory of Mary Hyjek, my beloved companion of 15 years. Mary passed away on Thursday October 5th, 2006
succumbing to a lengthy battle with Cancer. One of her last requests was that the goals of this mission, which has been in preparation
for the past four years, be reached and completed. She insisted that I continue with this project by raising funds through the sale of
teddy bears in hopes of providing less fortunate families with wheel chairs desperately needed for their youngsters.
