Ann & Anita's mission is to make an impact on lives of those coping with cancer and their families by providing a different kind of care-support inspired by giving a positive message through beading. The health benefits of beading is to help decrease illness-related stress, increase the use of positive coping strategies, help children find meaning in illness and restore a sense of self in children coping with a serious illness. In addition, the beading therapy process allows children to share their expressions and experiences in battling cancer with others.
There’s something soothing and therapeutic about making art. The way it relaxes you and gets your mind off your troubles. Anita and Ann continue to share several health benefits of beading:
We offer beading off-site whether we're beading with Church groups, Nursing homes, Migrant campsite, Diocese of Toledo Women's Conference. We also worked with patients and families heal from cancer experience ProMedica Cancer Institute of Flower Hospital, Toledo Children's Hospital, Mercy Autism Services. Every year we're delighted to be called to bead with children and delights.
