Beads of Courage
May 2: Support Give Day Tampa by Donating to Beads of Courage Program
Beads of Courage is an international program that offers kids a positive, visual way to explain and share their personal medical journey. Kids earn a unique bead for each procedure and milestone they go through, for example, the red bead represents a blood transfusion and the brown bead symbolizes hair loss.
Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital will participate in Give Day Tampa Bay, asking the community for donations to continue supporting the Beads of Courage program at the hospital. Donate and learn more at Give Day Tampa Day.
Let us know if you would like to profile a patient who has collected beads through their medical journey and see first-hand the impact it has had on their treatment plan.
