Spread the message about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. It is a message that every woman needs to know and one you can share with the women in your life — a daughter, sister, or friend. BeadPositive® key chains (formerly known as Beads for Life) help make this happen. They are three-dimensional teaching tools designed to inform women about breast health and early detection.
BeadPositive was founded by Kim Schaaf in 1997 under the name Beads for Life. Today BeadPositive is a part of Citrine Health’s Breast Health Program. The key chains are an easy and fun way to help spread the word on an extremely important and less discussed topic.
Each key chain is hand-beaded at Citrine Health in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Each bead on the key chain demonstrates the different size breast lumps that can be found depending on the detection method. The key chains are made out of wooden and glass beads making each key chain unique. Small variations in the natural materials add character and beauty to each piece. Colors vary by batch. The example below is illustrative of one such variation.
The beads represent the different-sized breast lumps that can be found using the following detection:
- Pink bead: by accident
- White bead: with regular breast self-exam
- Natural bead: with first mammogram
- Red bead: with yearly mammograms
