Each year in the United States, approximately 500,000 children cope with life-threatening conditions.
Less than one percent of children needing hospice services receive it in the United States.
Children die from trauma, lethal congenital conditions, extreme pre-maturity, heritable disorders, or acquired illness.

Organizations that bring comfort and healing to those in these crushing situations are doing more than just providing hope and care for individual families. They are providing a fighting chance for the kids who will shape our future.
