Noah's Bear!

Meet Flash, the eighth Limited Edition Collectible Starlight Bear for 2016, designed with the help of 7 year old Noah. Flash was inspired by Noah's love of the colour orange. The rainbow bow tie reflects his happy disposition and represents his love for looking dapper wherever he goes. Noah was diagnosed with Pompe disease in 2011 when he was only 2. Like many of the children that are affected by Pompe disease, Noah has an enlarged heart.

All proceeds go to Starlight Foundation Canada. more

About Pompe

Pompe Disease is a neuromuscular disorder that causes muscle weakness in persons of any age.

Patients that are affected as infants can also have organ involvement. Early diagnosis is critical. more
