AKRON CHILDRENS HOSPITAL FOUNDATION wrote -
The Akron Children’s Hospital Haslinger Family Pediatric Palliative Care Center serves children, from before birth and into adulthood, who have complex, chronic or life-threatening medical conditions. Pediatric palliative care offers an additional layer of support for families on difficult medical journeys, in partnership with cure-directed care. Our palliative care team works in collaboration with a child’s other healthcare providers to coordinate care, to improve communication and to help with decision making. Children receive comprehensive, interdisciplinary care to control pain and other symptoms, as well as social, psychological, practical/financial and spiritual support. Your donation will go directly to help us make a child’s life a little brighter.
