All Chemo Ducks have a little cover that goes on their arm. This is called a no-no arm immobilizer. This helps hold the IV in place. Chemo Ducks also have deep belly buttons. The belly button is where Chemo Duck’s feeding tube goes. Chemo Ducks helps kids feel safe and understand what is happening when they are going through infusion treatment. They also help mommies and daddies, brothers, sisters, cousins and friends understand what is happening to someone they care about.

For children coping with serious and life-threatening illnesses each bead tells a story of their survival.
