I can't even begin to thank 1Boy4Change for all the encouragement he brings to myself and others. First of all, I'm amazed that he does this completely by himself. I know it takes a lot of time and dedication, especially for someone who also has chronic illnesses. When I applied for my warrior beads, I was having a tough time coming to terms with the many diagnosis's I had recently received. What Chris does makes it very obvious that I'm not alone in my battle. Each color or type of bead represents something different in my medical journey. I was astonished when I received them and saw just how many there were. I now hang them on my IV pole when I do my infusions. It reminds me just how far I've come and just how strong I am. I now keep count of things so I can apply for more beads in the future. None of this would be possible without donations and the generosity of others! Thanks again, my warrior beads are the best!

I've been following Chris Carswell and 1Boy4Change for several years now. He was a child of 13 or 14 when I came to know of him through SD Bronx and his warrior beads program. I have never met a teenager with so much love and care in his heart for others. Chris puts his own pain and suffering to the side for the benefit of children who are ill, and his K9 protection program. He brings joy to both young children and adults. Chris Carswell is truly a young hero who will do great things in the future.

I have followed this young man's story over the last several years. He continues to amaze and inspire me. His courage and dignity in the face of constant challenges, both medical and personal is a testimony to the power of faith. In spite of the obstacles his courage never seems to falter and his compassion for others shines brightest in hard times. Chris works tirelessly through his nonprofit activities to improve and enhance the lives of others. Even now, in the midst of a terrible personal tragedy he continues to focus on what he can do for others. His energy and creativity keep him on the path to changing our world for the better.

An incredible charity run by an amazing young man. The warrior bead program enables people battling their own medical conditions to tell their story. Each bead represents courage and strength. They mean so much to the people who receive them.
