Day Surgery Buddy
Hi, I’m the Day Surgery Buddy! I joined the Shadow Buddies Foundation as support for any and every child diagnosed with an illness or undergoing medical treatment. So whether your kiddo is going to the hospital or an outpatient facility for medical procedures, treatments or surgery, I’ll be there! I don’t represent any specific medical condition and come with a belly button, brightly colored gown, a big smile and loving, heart-shaped eyes.
Hi, I’m the Tracheostomy Buddy! I’m specially made to be a friend for your child or loved one who’s “just like me” and I’m also a great teaching tool for medical professionals to educate both patients and family members. I’m soft and huggable, ready to make sure your child knows they are never alone. I come with a pediatric trach tube connector inserted on the neck to help mimic your child’s condition. I’ll be individually packaged, with a colorful gown, heart shaped eyes for love and a big smile!
Welcome to The Shadow Buddies Foundation
We work to spread Miles of Smiles to children across the world!
Since 1995, The Shadow Buddies Foundation has been bringing smiles, hope and companionship to medically challenged children across the country and around the world in the form of cuddly, plush Buddies.
Our Shadow Buddies are a representation that your child, regardless of any illness they may have, is never alone, that they can proudly proclaim they have a friend “just like me.”
Help the Shadow Buddies Foundation spread love and education to these special children and their families; you can donate your time, money and even Buddies, themselves, to make a difference in the life of a child.
