I wanted to send a heart-felt shout out to all of the families and staff at Phoenix Children's Hospital, Beads of Courage, and Cardon Children's Medical Center in Arizona that I have had the privilege of working with over the past 7 years.
This little guy is a true miracle! Heart transplant then up and running around in a few days. Every bead around his neck represents the pokes, tests, surgeries, and nights in the hospital he has endured in his young life. Every bead represents his courage!
Beads of Courage, Inc. is an amazing non profit organization I create programs for. They help children coping with serious illness to communicate their personal story through art and symbolism.
Please check out their website.
The programs help children and teens in over 115 hospitals around the world including the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Japan, the U.K., Ireland, and Scotland.
ART IS AMAZING!
