Beads of Courage®

The Beads of Courage Program helps children coping with serious illness RECORD, TELL and OWN their story of COURAGE!
Children receive beads for every treatment, procedure and milestone that they encounter. A child can tell you what every single bead on their sometimes 1,000 bead strand signifies, from blood draws, nights in the hospital to hair loss and transplant. Their beads help them tell their story and honor and recognize their COURAGE.

ASCF is currently funding this innovative program in three children's hospitals in New Jersey; St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson, The Valerie Center at Goryeb Children's Hospital in Morristown and The Bristol Myers-Squibb Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick.


ASCF is proud to partner with BEADS OF COURAGE, together helping children RECORD, TELL and OWN their stories of courage.
ASCF Beads will be given to each patient participating in Beads of Courage wherever ASCF has funded. ASCF hopes to establish this wonderful program in as many other area hospitals as possible!
Please consider sponsoring for this years event. You can Sponsor a bead for just $5 EACH.
