Advancing compassionate, comprehensive care of children with life-limiting conditions.



COVID 19 and Palliative Care

The current coronavirus pandemic has caused great disruption in normal life for all of us.  The executive board of the Children's Palliative Care Coalition of Michigan wishes continued health and strength to cope to all of our members, to our supporters and to your families as this uncertain future unfolds.  A high priority, especially health care providers, is that you follow the most up-to-date information and guidance on protecting yourselves and your loved ones and your colleagues. If your professional role is to help seriously ill children and their families, we hope that most of you can remain available to support those who need a sympathetic ear, a shoulder to cry on, or your thoughtful advice. Good sources of information are:

The Center for Disease Control

American Academy of Pediatrics

The State of Michigan Department of Health

National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care

The Center to Advance Palliative Care

Thanks for your continued support of the coalition's mission:  To help seriously ill children and their families.

What we do

How you can help


Learning that your child has a life-limiting illness can be devastating. It can be confusing and overwhelming to begin to understand what you may need medically and emotionally. Navigating the system along with your own feelings can be challenging and frustrating. Many parents want to seek out as much information as possible.
