Children's Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition
Our mission is to ensure compassionate care for children with life-threatening conditions and their families, speaking out on behalf of those too little or too sick to speak for themselves. Founded in 2001 by Lori Butterworth and Devon Dabbs, Children's Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition (CHPCC) is leading the way to bring about lasting, fundamental change in California's treatment of seriously ill children and their families. Through CHPCC's direct efforts, the federal government has approved a pediatric hospice eligibility waiver which is resulting in dramatic policy reform within the state's pediatric healthcare system. For the first time in California history, children diagnosed with a life-threatening condition will have access to an innovative model of care that allows them to obtain commuinity-based hospice and palliative services while continuing to receive curative treatment. This is a remarkable achievement and a significant milestone towards ensuring fair and equal access to pediatric palliative care for our state?s children for generations to come. Background and Achievements Over the past eight years, Children's Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition has provided more than 1,800 hours of direct support and services to dying children, more than 400 round trip rides to treatment for children who would have had to take the bus or miss a medical appointment, and ongoing direct financial support to families struggling to care for a seriously ill child. In doing so, CHPCC has created a model of compassionate end-of-life care that works for children. In addition to direct support, CHPCC steadfastly addresses barriers to healthcare services that particularly hurt economically disadvantaged families, culturally specific populations, and other vulnerable groups. Intending to both resolve a statewide problem and provide an innovative model for other communities across the U.S. confronting similar challenges, the organization has: Enacted the Nick Snow Children's Hospice & Palliative Care Act of 2006 resulting in the development of a new Pediatric Palliative Care Benefit, which is increasing access to hospice and palliative services for an estimated 17,000 of Californias children; Launched BEST in Pediatrics, a statewide educational initiative in support of the new Pediatric Palliative Care Benefit; Established the Partnership for Children, a replicable model program serving the needs of families on the Central Coast, which is now being piloted statewide; ? Provided more than 500 hours of direct service, 200 rides to and from treatment; Established the Partnership for Parents, a family advisory council of bereaved parents supporting CHPCC's advocacy efforts; Created the first and only multilingual web resource addressing the unique needs of parents caring for a seriously ill child (www.partnershipforparents.org) or grieving the loss of a child.

Children's Miracle Network


Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta
Children Need a Place Uniquely Their Own Choosing a healthcare provider for your child is an important decision.

Children should be cared for by pediatric doctors, nurses and specialists who understand these differences.


Chris DiMarco's 65 Roses Golf Classic
65 Roses is what some children with CF call their disease because the words are much easier for them to pronounce. Mary G. Weiss became a volunteer for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 1965 after learning that her three little boys had CF. Her duty was to call every civic club, social and service organization seeking financial support for CF research. Mary's 4-year old son, Richard, listened closely to his mother as she made each call. After several calls, Richard came into the room and told his Mom, "I know what you are working for." Mary was dumbstruck because Richard did not know what she was doing, nor did he know that he had cystic fibrosis. With some trepidation, Mary posed the question, "What am I working for, Richard?" "You are working for 65 Roses," he answered so sweetly. Mary was speechless. She went over to him and tenderly pressed his body to hers. He could not see the tears running down Mary's cheeks as she stammered, "Yes Richard, I'm working for 65 Roses." Since 1965, the term "65 Roses" has been used by children of all ages to describe their disease. But, making it easier to say does not make CF any easier to live with. The "65 Roses" story has captured the hearts and emotions of all who have heard it. The rose, appropriately the ancient symbol of love, has become a symbol of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a nonprofit donor-supported organization, is to assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. The Foundation is the leading organization in the United States devoted to cystic fibrosis. It funds and accredits more than 115 CF care centers, 95 adult care programs and 50 affiliate programs, and has 80 chapters and branch offices nationwide. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is one of the most efficient organizations of its kind. It has received a four-star rating for sound fiscal management from Charity Navigator, the largest independent charity evaluator in the United States and is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance.
