"Tucker’s Teddies is a 501c3 nonprofit organization created in honor of Tucker Mullen. On September 26, 2017, Tucker was born. He was a perfectly beautiful little boy. One month later he would be diagnosed with left ventricular non-compaction, a rare form of cardiomyopathy. Tucker was sent to Children's National in DC. He received amazing care. It was the hope that with medication and close observation he would do well. Unfortunately, in December of 2017 Tucker's heart condition grew more severe. He would be admitted to the
at Children's, there he would spend the next 3 1/2 weeks. Tucker passed on January 7, 2018. Tucker's Teddies Inc supplies teddy bears to families that have lost a child so they do not have to walk out of the hospital empty handed. The Tucker Bear provides something to hug and hold on that long walk and the car ride home. Smaller bears are provided to children being treated in-patient. Delivering craft materials, memory making kits and holiday decorations to those being treated at various hospitals is another way we lend support to families and patients. Last but certainly not least we will offer any support possible to staff for example, holding staff appreciation days.
