Children Can Also Benefit From Hospice & Palliative Care

Terminal illness does not discriminate age. According to the Annual Summary of Vital Statistics (2009), there were 26,531 infant deaths in the United States. That is a death rate of 6.42 deaths per 1,000 live births. Everyday families are left heartbroken from the news that their child has a terminal illness or condition. The Children’s Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition partnered with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHCPO) and are working to extend hospice services to children.
