Beads of Courage 2012

March 29, 2012

The Beads of Courage Program helps patients at Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital's Center for Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders document and share their journey through the maze of childhood illness and treatment. Each bead represents a very specific event, from a chemotherapy treatment to a pet therapy visit to a needle stick, and everything in between. Every Beads of Courage strand is unique. The program, launched in 2010, is sponsored by Maureen's Hope Foundation. For a photo album, visit http://on.fb.me/GW8ZHP.
