The 26th Annual Teddy Bear Clinic will be held this Sunday afternoon from noon to 4pm at Blessing Hospital's main entrance. As the founder of this event 26 years ago, the staff at Blessing Riemann College of Nursing was kind enough to name one of two new gigantic Teddy Bears after me. He is known as the "Dorsey Bear" and the other is known as "Flo" after Florence Nightingale. This morning I got the chance to meet my namesake in our studios.

Twenty-five years ago I took my 6-year-old daughter to the Peoria Zoo and as chance would have it one of the Peoria hospitals was holding a stuffed animal day at the Zoo. Little did I know 25 years later, the idea that I brought back to Quincy would still be flourishing. I came back to Quincy thinking that this needs to happen in our town, too. We didn't have a zoo in Quincy but we did have the Animal Park at the Illinois Veteran’s Home. Armed with ideas during my drive back to Quincy, I went to work to make sure this took place in our town. I contacted Blessing Hospital and they set me up with a meeting with the right people and “The Teddy Bear Clinic” was born.
