Effective pediatric palliative care begins when a life-limiting illness is diagnosed in a child. Such care requires a broad multidisciplinary approach and involves the family, medical center and local, supportive resources. When you invest in palliative care, you leave nothing out, making a difference in the lives of families and their children. Join us in our mission for better palliative care across Central Texas.
Gus Owen Stephens supports hospitals across Central Texas in the community-driven effort to provide better palliative care, supporting children and their families through life-limiting illnesses.READ OUR STORY
Palliative care for children focuses on body, mind and spirit, as well as emotional support for the family and their child.
Palliative care begins at the moment of diagnosis and continues throughout the child's life, regardless of treatment plan.
Effective palliative care involves the family, local medical center and available community resources.
