Every department in Leeds NHS Hospital Trust, that your child comes into contact with has a special designated bead. Your child is entitled to a bead for every intervention they undergo. Each bead has a special meaning.

Examples of the beads are shown above; radiotherapy beads are a variety of colours and they glow in the dark! 

Your child can collect the beads to show them the journey they have been on through their cancer treatment.
