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!

Impressive from start to finish. I was aware of 1Boy4Change & his warrior beads long before becoming acquainted with the people behind the beads. Having several health challenges of my own, I saw people from all over the country (via social media support groups) excited to receive their beads. A patients journey is long, isolating and filled with procedures the healthy world has never even heard of. The beads represent our battle, not a count of the pain endured, but of the battles won, one procedure at a time, with different colors beads representing various tests/ procedures. It's a score card that shows us we have been through hell & back, and we are still fighting; a reminder that we have come so far and today is not the day to give up. Such a simple idea, such a meaningful impact made more special by the fact your package of color specific beads are put together by a young man who is legally blind. When most adults would give up, this young man& his mom are giving back in a meaningful way. Your donations go exactly where they say it will.... I'd encourage everyone to give to this effort. As a professional grant maker, I wish I saw more non profits doing so much with this level of integrity.
