More About Beads of Courage

Every Bead Tells a Story of Strength, Honor and Hope

There is a lot more to know about beads of courage. Below is just a taste of what this remarkable program is, what it does for the children, and what it means to us as lampwork beadmakers. Get more inforamtion at Beads of Courage Web Site.


How it Works

Upon enrollment each child is given the Beads of Courage bead color guide with a detachable membership card. Their Beads of Courage journey begins when each child is first given a length of string and beads that spell out their first name. Then, colorful beads, each representing a different treatment milestone are given to the child by their professional health care provider to add to their Beads of Courage collection throughout their treatment as determined by the Beads of Courage Bead Guide (available from Beads of Courage, Inc.)

The Beads of CourageĀ® Program is available for the following:

Cancer and Blood Disorders
Cardiac Conditions
Burn injuries
Launched in November 2010: Neonatal ICU Families
Coming in Summer 2011: Beads of Courage for children coping with a chronic illness.

All Program bead guides were developed in collaboration with experts in the field (nurses, doctors, child life specialists and social workers) so that each bead guide would reflect meaningful acknowledgment of a child's treatment journey.
