This program allows for the same nurse a terminally Ill child has in the hospital to become the visiting nurse at home. The child and the family know the nurse and the nurse knows the case. It helps make a very difficult situation a little less stressful everyone. This is an unthinkable time for all involved every little bit helps. Thanks to all of you we were able to do this.
