Escape Hatch

Beads

The Bead Program

The BEAD PROGRAM is designed to document and honor the journey of children diagnosed with cancer. It is a chance for each child to tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of many points along the treatment path. The participating child receives a length of elastic nylon thread with beads that spell out their first name, date of diagnosis and a Sarah Grace Foundation Bead that joins us, as sponsor, with them on their journey. Throughout treatment the child receives colored beads, each representing a different aspect of care. The child’s parent/guardian receives a journal to chronicle the child’s path.

The BEAD PROGRAM is administered through the Social Workers, Staff and Child Life Specialists of participating hospitals.

Additionally, through the generosity of our donors The Sarah Grace Foundation continues to provide the following:

  • Ball Game Tickets
  • Financial Aid
  • Funeral Expenses
  • Holiday Parties/Activities
  • Meal Allowances
  • Transportation Allowances
  • Sponsored Outings (Amusement Park, etc.)
  • Toys/Games: Child specific requests

Ways to Help

  • Become a volunteer blood and platelet donor by contacting LI Blood Services or your local blood service.
  • Become a marrow donor by joining the National Marrow Donor program by registering at www.marrow.org.
  • BECOME A VOLUNTEER – Contact us! The Sarah Grace Foundation is an all volunteer organization. All of our programs and activities are possible throught the generosity of our donors AND volunteers committed to making a difference.
