This report is about Rose. Rose was diagnosed with lymphoma in July last year.She has a lot of support from the Kanjerketting (Chain of Courage), because it makes it so clear to her what happened and will happen. You get a bead for every (medical) treatment. For example, when you get your chemo, you receive the pink, white and green bead. It makes a sort of diary and it helps remembering the treatments you had.
The Kanjerketting also makes other people aware of what you experience when you are sick. You can show your chain and tell your story, where the beads help you telling is. It's a really visual diary.
When you hair starts falling out due to the treatment for cancer, you also receive a bead. This bead is a small cap. Rose's hair also fell out during her treatment. Even twice! She had the bead for hair falling out twice.
When Rose's hair started falling out for the second time, Rose had a conversation with her brother. Together they came up with the question of why there isn't a bead for when your hair grows back.It is so important to think about the positive things as well!
With this beautiful thought, Rose started an action.An action to collect money for a new bead for the Kanjerketting, namely a bead for when your hair grows back.
