Candace Cameron Bure Remembers Bob Saget With Charity Initiative

By Movieguide® Contributor

Candace Cameron Bure is honoring late friend and co-star Bob Saget with a new line of sweatshirts that will benefit the Scleroderma Research Foundation. 

“It’s been a little over a month, and there’s days that are great and there’s days that just hits you,” she said while appearing on Fox News. “I want to remember Bob and what a kind and loving and amazing person that he was.” 

The sweatshirts Bure designed have “Love like Jesus, Hug like Bob” printed on them. 

“I did it really for selfish reasons because I love Jesus,” the actress explained. “He’s the best example of humanity and sacrifice. And then there’s nobody that hugs like Bob, and I will always remember that as a huge part of his legacy.” 



100 percent of the profits from the sweatshirts will go to the Scleroderma Research Foundation, one of Saget’s favorite causes. The actor raised millions of dollars for the foundation after his sister passed away due to the disease. 

Bure went on to say that she wants to carry on Saget’s legacy of showing love and giving hugs to those in his life. 

“He was so emotionally available, and he just always, always let you know that he loved you,” she said. “Every text, every phone call, every moment in person. He would give you the biggest hug, and he always let you know how much he cared about you.”

“That is such an incredibly powerful gift that he gave,” Bure continued. “And that’s what I want to carry on. I want to hug like Bob.”
