Hemby is excited to bring Beads of Courage®
to our pediatric patients and families. A national program that partners with member hospitals to help children with serious illnesses record, tell and own their stories of survival through beads, Hemby is the only hospital in the Charlotte area to offer Beads of Courage® to our patients. Each colorful bead represents a procedure, hospital stay, treatment or milestone along a medical journey.
All hematology, oncology, cardiology, chronic illness and NICU patients at Hemby can participate in this program, free of charge. Each eligible patient is first given a string and beads that spell their name. From there, they are given different beads to represent different procedures and milestones throughout their journey.
