At Beads of Courage, we recognize the strength and courage parents and caregivers display every day when caring for children and teenagers facing any serious medical condition. In order to care for others, you must first care for yourself! Please join us for one of our virtual sessions for an opportunity for a little self-care and to connect with others. These are LIVE events, hosted by a member of our Beads of Courage Program Team and requires registration to receive the Zoom link and session materials.

Virtual Bead Strong:

The Beads of Courage® Bead Strong Program was created to provide an experience in mindfulness. Mindfulness is achieved when an individual is able to calmly focus, be aware and accept one’s own thoughts and feelings. Each Bead Strong activity uses several different tools including mantras, art, breathwork and beads.

All sessions for Parents/Caregivers are now full. Please check back in 2023 for any updates.

Virtual Caregiver Support Session about Sibling Programming:

For a limited time, we are offering the opportunity to receive a FREE Beads of Courage® Sibling Kit along with virtual support from our Certified Child Life Specialist, Lindsie Padden – compliments of our program sponsor – The Scarcelli Family Foundation. During the session, Lindsie will provide caregivers ideas on how to implement the sibling program with your children.

Virtual Bereavement Sessions:

The loss of a child is something no one should ever experience. The days, months and years to follow are some of the most difficult, and while the grief will never end, we hope that it can change. Beads of Courage remains beside you during this time as believe that nobody should tackle grief alone. We are honored to offer a safe space for you to process, remember, connect and share. Please join us for an hour of self-care and remembrance during our virtual bereavement sessions. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link and materials.

Dates and registration links coming soon. Please check back for details.
