These children often have many hospital stays and outpatient visits and during these times the children may need to go through medical procedures that can be painful and traumatic. Children are wonderfully resilient and often, at these times, their courage and strength are awe inspiring, but dealing with these procedures is never easy for them or their families.
The Little Star Beads program offers children little rewards for their medical procedures in the form of unique beads. The beads are strung together to create a string of beads that will tell the story of each child’s personal, medical journey.
If your child has been diagnosed with a serious long term illness, and requires regular medical treatment, they are eligible for the Little Star Beads program. We welcome children from birth to 12 years to our program, regardless of the type or date of their diagnosis.
The Beads Program (native to Canberra) is slowly rolling out through the rest of Australia. To order beads or find out if they are available in your area contact us.
