Beads of Courage

Beads of Courage is a program for kids who are coping with a serious illness. Different procedures, clinic visits, hospital stays all have a color bead to represent what each child has gone through. There are one of a kind courage beads for any time a child has to go through something not otherwise assigned, or that was especially difficult for that particular child. Lily got a purple bead last time because she had to get a poke. Blue beads are for clinic visits, yellow for nights in the hospital, silver for surgery, black and white stripes are for pokes, Iv's,etc. She got one for her port, and the green ones are for scans. She got the special heart bead for her stay in the PICU, the punkin for being sick over Halloween, and the Angel bead because her Grandma came to see her from so far away. I have a feeling this week will be a big week for beading.
