Pediatric Palliative Care Program helps families through the hard times.
Fifteen-year-old Cam is a true survivor and warrior. In 2016,
he was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia – he also has autism. His mother, Cristen, maintains a blog (Cameron the Leukemia Warrior) to document and educate others on their journey. PPC Coordinator June Green learned about this family through the blog and reached out three Christmases ago to offer gifts through the Caring for Children program. Cristen gratefully accepted the gifts, and then signed Cam into PPC.
Support for the Whole Family through Pediatric Palliative Care Program
Kaydance was placed in the care of the Department of Children and Families after spending 6 months in the hospital. She suffered from seizures and subdural hematomas. It was clear that she would require substantial care going forward.
Pediatric Palliative Care is here to advocate for your child’s needs.
Ellie was born with a brain stem deformity and microcephaly, which rendered her unable to develop as a normal baby would. Immediately after she was born, Ellie was placed in the care of the Department of Children and Families.
