Beads of Courage Programs help children coping with cancer and other serious illnesses record, tell and own their stories of courage.
Because of Beads of Courage, resilience is strengthened, quality of life is improved, joy is experienced, and hope is realized.
We help more than 60,000 children in 250 hospitals in the US and around the world. What we do is simple and effective, but we can't do it alone.
We need you to support us. Please donate today. A donation of as little as $15 can provide up to 500 Beads of Courage.
A donation of $100 can move a child off our waiting list, because a child shouldn't have to wait for Beads of Courage.
At Beads of Courage, we have a pretty good exchange rate. We make donated dollars stretch far as we provide arts-in-medicine programs for children and teens coping with serious illness, their families, and the clinicians who care for them.
Our goal is to provide all the Beads of Courage Programs we have developed at every member hospital and to support every child currently on the waiting list for Beads in the Mail.
