Beads of Courage

   If you are familiar with Children's hospitals, then you have probably heard of Beads of Courage.  The program is an art-minded support group for children with chronic diseases.  Each color of bead represents a different hospital act, anything from doctors appointments to major surgeries.  I have been a regular at my hospital for 7-8 years and currently being treated for Crohn's disease.  The nurse gave me 7 big flowery beads representing each year, and a million little beads that I would have earned in that year.  I think the Beads of Courage program gives children something to look forward to during a very difficult time in their lives.  I could very easily buy beads at a craft store, but they would never mean anything.  These are not just beads, they are a life long journey.  
Show your support!
