This project was inspired by the extraordinary spirit and legacy of countless children with severe illness and disability and their families. It is also a testament to the compassion and dedication of palliative care team members who have helped the families navigate the complexities of care.

The goal of this film is to increase awareness and understanding of pediatric palliative care. It showcases what care can be and should be for every family facing these challenges. The program at Akron Children’s Hospital in Akron, Ohio, is presented as a model of care that can be successfully developed and sustained in communities and pediatric hospitals across the country.
