Beads of courage

Beads of courage

In the early 2000s the Child Cancer Foundation of New Zealand ran a programme called Beads of Courage. Young cancer sufferers got a necklace with their name spelt out in beads. Every time they had a treatment or met another challenge a bead was added. Kavahn Taumatauka (6) and Claudia Little (5) are wearing their beads at a colouring-in competition in Auckland in 2010.
