One of 2011's truly humbling experiences was the opportunity to work together with the Child Cancer Foundation, where Hansen committed 100% of retail profits during the Fieldays to support the “Beads of Courage” programme. We were visited by Page Tuioti and her family, a courageous young girl who has under gone treatment. Paige got to add her touch to the Child Cancer Foundation’s colourful equine ambassador Maia at Fieldays. Maia is covered in Beads painted by Child Cancer Foundation children, who have replicated the Beads of Courage they receive during treatment to recognise and reward their bravery. Hansen's support for the Child Cancer Foundation is ongoing.

Beads of Courage® is a therapeutic programme that recognises the strength and courage of each child during cancer treatment and procedures. Each bead represents a treatment (for example chemotherapy, injections, scans); an experience (hair loss, isolation, fever) or a milestone (completion of treatment). For every medical treatment or procedure children with cancer receive a bead.
The Beads of Courage® provides a physical story of a child’s journey – one which can be shared with friends and family. They are also a great way for a child to make meaning of their cancer journey.
Beads of Courage® also includes the Sibling Beads Programme which offers siblings the opportunity to earn beads for positive and helpful behaviour. These unique beads offer siblings a representation of their part in supporting their brother or sister with cancer.
