Beads of Courage

The Beads of Courage program, which Camp Quality funds at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, uses unique beads to track each procedure of a child’s cancer experience, such as blood tests, central lines, radiation sessions and surgery. Sometimes many metres long, the bead strings become a badge of honour for children who miss out on the everyday milestones of other kids, and instead proudly collect beads that tell their own courageous story.

In 2016 we had our 100th Beads of Courage member.
