Our mission is to raise money for and support pediatric palliative care and hospice programs in the Houston area. By doing so, we endeavor to help Houston area medical institutions and providers develop, sustain, and enrich these programs for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families. We aim to lift some of the burdens weighing on these precious pediatric patients and their families by helping to make first class care accessible, providing comfort, easing pain, and maximizing quality of life.
The goals set by the Foundation’s Board of Directors fall into three categories: short-term, ongoing, and long-term. The Foundation’s short-term goal is to fund the salary of an RN who can make home visits trained specifically in pediatric palliative care for at least one local program. This nurse will assist families by making in-home visits. The Foundation’s on-going goal is to help provide Durable Medical Equipment for children receiving palliative care. This equipment includes things like wheelchairs, specialized car seats, car beds, walkers, and braces. Finally, the Foundation’s long-term goal is to raise enough money to help fund a pediatric respite facility/in-patient pediatric hospice facility in Houston. With your help, we can reach and even surpass these goals.
