BEADS OF COURAGE Tax ID 20-2721500


We are passionate about providing innovative, arts-in-medicine supportive care programs for children coping with serious illness, their families and the health care providers who care for them.

Since March 2005, we have been working diligently to transform the treatment experience for children and teens coping with chronic, life threatening illness through our arts-in-medicine programs. Through Beads of Courage, children and teens are able to tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path.

In just 6 years since our inception, our organization has established our programs in over 90 children's hospitals in the United States, New Zealand and Japan. Our growth is evidence of the need for the type of support Beads of Courage provides for children and teens coping with serious illness.
