Journey Beads Program

Celebrating every step in your cancer journey

We know how hard it is to cope with a diagnosis of cancer. Every step in that journey is a milestone, a victory.

And we believe every one of those victories should be celebrated. That’s why we’re offering Journey Beads, a series of free, colored glass beads you can wear on a silk string.

Each bead symbolizes an important point in your journey, a specific procedure or trial you have endured.

The beads serve as a testament to your strength and courage, a reminder of your endurance as a fighter and survivor.

Beads and strings are available at both Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology at UHS Wilson Medical Center, and from our Oncology Nurse Navigators. Beads are also available in the Oncology Department at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital in Norwich.  Just ask.

Wear your Journey Beads to mark the steps you want to celebrate in your journey, your own unique walk of fortitude and hope.
