    Verein für krebskranke Kinder Hannover

    Tebis helps the organization with a donation for the bravery bead chains

    Since 1984, this organization has helped children with cancer, their families and the pediatric cancer ward at the Hannover Medical School.

    When a seriously ill child is newly admitted to the ward, they need a great deal of help, support and courage - courage to face life. To lend them the latter, each child begins on arrival to string their personal chain of bravery beads.

    The first bead stands for hope. 

    Other specially shaped beads are gradually added. The chain grows with every treatment endured, after every painful examination, for every MRI, loss of hair or bone marrow biopsy. 

    Because the bravery beads have to fulfill the highest hygienic standards, they do not come cheap.
    The Verein für krebskranke Kinder relies on donations to give each child the opportunity to create their own personal chain.
