Your donation on Arizona Gives Day helps us get Beads of Courage to kids like Foster, pictured here, who depend on beads to help them get through all the tests, treatments, and procedures they must endure in their fight for life.
Foster was diagnosed with leukemia in January 2016, just a few weeks after his 4th birthday. His mom recently shared a photo of Foster getting a chest x-ray with the hashtag #beadsmakeitbetter.
She tells us, "Foster will try his best to get through anything, knowing he will be able to get another bead! The beads really do have an immense positive impact, not only on Foster, but our entire family.
"When Foster has a difficult and painful 'poke' experience, he looks forward to choosing his Courage Bead and it helps him be strong and brave. A child life specialist comes, the tears dissipate, and smiles arrive as he carefully chooses his special bead."
Please give generously on AZ Gives Day ... because for kids like Foster and more than 60,000 others we support, beads really do make it better.
