Children’s Medical Center Launches Beads of Courage® Program

Beads of Courage is a program that helps children who are coping with serious illness record, tell and own their stories. Colorful beads are given to young patients following tests, procedures and other treatment-related milestones. The beads help provide them with a language to communicate with others about their treatment and collected beads can form a meaningful narrative of their journey.

Beads of Courage, Inc., was founded in 2005 and partners with over 300 hospitals nationally and internationally. To learn more visit

Beads of Courage is grateful for the sponsorship by the Vegas Knights Foundation and partnership in caring with Maureen’s Hope Foundation.
