CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Beads of Courage is a program found in Children’s Hospitals across the world helping children deal with their serious illnesses.

The Beads of Courage are beads given to children with serious illnesses to help mark the milestones during their treatment.  Each time a child has blood drawn, surgery, chemo or rides in an ambulance anything to do with their treatment to mark that point in their life.  

The children can pick a special bead to string on a necklace to say “I DID IT”.  These necklaces will help them tell the story of the journey of their treatment with each bead having its own meaning and rewarding them for their bravery.

We are lucky to have a program like that here at Cincinnati Children’s.
