Little Boy Reunited With His Bear After Huge Social Media Search

Little Boy Reunited With His Bear After Huge Social Media Search

A young boy has been reunited with his beloved teddy bear after a social media post sparked a nationwide hunt.

Four-year-old Atticus lost his beloved cuddly bear Boeuf last Friday after a hospital appointment to prepare him for radiotherapy.

His mum Emily Feduchin-Pate posted a heartfelt appeal on Facebook in a desperate attempt to reunite her terminally ill son with his beloved bear.

The plea received 2.7k shares on Facebook and a fellow mum took it upon herself to phone around in a desperate attempt to find the bear.

Thankfully the mum located Boeuf in a shop behind Waterloo Station in London and Atticus has now been reunited with his best friend.

In the original appeal Emily detailed where herself and Atticus had visited after their appointment.

She wrote: "Our four year old son Atticus is terminally ill and has lost his best friend Boeuf (below - well loved cuddly brown bear with bandage on right paw).

"We were in the basement of UCLH at midday on Friday 25th January to prep for Atticus' radiotherapy and from there caught a black cab at about 14:30.

"The cab driver was lovely, said he worked at the Royal London whilst studying for the Knowledge and is a Washington Redskins fan.

"He dropped us off by the Shell building/Jubilee Gardens so we could pop into a souvenir shop behind Waterloo. We then walked to Waterloo, visited Yo! Sushi and caught a train at 15:50 to Whitchurch.

"We know we had Boeuf at the hospital because he had his own special radiotherapy mask made. After that I'm afraid we don't know!

"Please help find him, Atticus starts radiotherapy on Monday 4th February and needs his best friend."

"With huge thanks to all you lovely people for sharing our post, the power of social media has worked! A lovely fellow mum whose son is also under the care of UCLH called around relentlessly and located Boeuf in a shop behind Waterloo.

"Suffice it to say there will be a very happy little boy whose best friend will help him through his second round of radiotherapy."
