Every bead tells a story of courage, honor and hope.

The RMHC-Beads of Courage DREAM program partnership.
Through the D.R.E.A.M children and teens coping with serious illness and their family members are invited to “Draw & Relax: Embrace the Art and Mind.” Each experience with DREAM provides a moment to connect with one another while reflecting on an art activity, a poem, and stringing a symbolic bead that can be added to their RMHC Courage Clip.Together, we can provide children and family members a new tool to cope, relax, and experience an outlet for emotions while coping with a serious illness.
