Beads of Courage

Beads of Courage® enable children to tell their story using colourful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones along their unique treatment path.

This international programme has been proven to decrease stress, increase positive coping strategies and help children find meaning in illness. Children have something tangible they can use to explain their experiences.

We were delighted to bring the Beads of Courage® programme to Ireland in 2015 and continue to fund it.

Once enrolled on the programme, your child will receive beads for various treatments and procedures, as well as special courage beads along the way.
