We would like ALL members ...

To all Tidewater Turner members — This is the second year we are participating in the “Beads of Courage” program for children with cancer.

A Letter from the Founder

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, and for having the courage to care. We are Beads of Courage, Inc. a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization dedicated to helping children with serious illness record, tell and own their stories of survival.
We have been working diligently to transform the treatment experience for children coping with chronic, life threatening illness through our arts-in-medicine programs.

In 11 years since our inception, our organization has established our programs in over 240 children’s hospitals in the United States, New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom and Japan. Our growth is evidence of the need for the type of support Beads of Courage provides for children coping with serious illness.
