In Hug-A-Beary Town, a new bear cub is born. But something seems different in the
cub's health that draws the town closer to him and his family. Jeremiah is touched by a
congenital heart defect (CHD). Dr. Toad helps to fix Jeremiah's broken heart so the cub
can grow and strive to accomplish his goals in life. Heartbeat Hippo, Rare Rabbit and
Cardiac Crane provide support and encouragement.
Jeremiah's triumphant story is written and illustrated for children to better understand
there is hope for CHDs, and they are not alone in the journey to defy odds. The story
also brings awareness to parents unfamiliar of the existence of CHDs. Coloring pages
follow Jeremiah's story. Silent Cries breaks through CHD awareness by producing
books, event programs and films that help CHD communities spread the word and
fund research for this disease that touches approximately 1 child in 100.
