NOTE: Hospital staff who are a part of a Beads of Courage Member Hospital, please see the Hospital Refill Store "Complementary Program" Menu to order the sibling program or contact Lindsie@beadsofcourage.org
The Beads of Courage Sibling Program is designed to help siblings Record, Tell and Own their Story of Courage as they journey alongside their brother or sister who is coping with a serious illness. Each sibling participating in the program will receive beads to honor their courage and to show accomplishment in the face of tough challenges.
Research shows that siblings who have a brother or sister coping with serious illness often suffer from extreme anxiety and worries. Together, our goal is to support and alleviate stress experienced by siblings through meaningful support. In addition to their beads, each sibling will be able to have their first name spelled out in ceramic letter beads. Please include the first name of the sibling.
**For a limited time, we are offering the opportunity to receive a FREE BOC 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 ideas on how to implement the sibling program with your children. Text “Sibling” to (520) 366-3431 to get started or register here.**
