Beads of Courage is a ¬†wonderful organization that provides support for children with serious illnesses. The children collect beads for the various procedures and events throughout their illness. “Ongoing evaluation of the Beads of Courage program indicates that the program helps to decrease illness-related distress, increase the use of positive coping strategies, helps children find meaning in illness, and restore sense of self in children coping with serious illness. The program also provides something tangible the child can use to tell about their experience during treatment and after.”
