A child's cancer treatment includes countless medical procedures and experiences. The Beads4Bravery program is a way for children to collect beads that symbolize each step of their cancer journey.

If your kiddo and/or family is missing beads or should have collected more beads along the way, you can fill out the form and receive them in the mail!

Once the form is filled out, you can either email it to  or mail it to 2708 Grand Ave, Des Moines, IA 50312.

The Beads4Bravery Legend  is attached  as well to help know which milestones the patient has passed that correspond to a bead. 

Beads4Bravery is run through Children's Cancer Connection. We are so lucky to be able to work with CCC to increase accessibility and awareness of this program to our families. If you have further questions on Beads4Bravery, please email
