West Coast Summit 2021

West Coast Summit Pediatric Palliative Care

"Hope is the feeling that one looks forward to, and plans for what will happen. To frame is to lay the groundwork for the way something is put together: including one's family. This Summit will address both the impact and the way forward when families have to adjust their hopes and aspirations to a very different reality."
