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.
