Lighting the Way in Pennsylvania.
Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition’s mission is to provide resources to families, volunteers and medical professionals caring for children with life-limiting illnesses.
Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition’s vision is a future where all children diagnosed with life-limiting conditions in Pennsylvania will have access to world-class palliative, hospice and end-of-life care
Our goal is to provide a clearer path for children and their families coping with this difficult, life-altering experience.
