When tasked with writing a blog post that would be published in the middle of November, my first thought was, “Perfect, easy – everyone loves a post that is comforting, moving and inspiring during the season of giving thanks!” When I learned the blog post topic was global health, well … after the last 18 months we’ve had, all I could think was, “How am I supposed to put a positive spin on global health at a time like this?”

Right now, millions of children globally need palliative care. Palliative care is essential for cancer patients – including children with cancer. According to the World Health Organization, “Palliative care for children represents a special, albeit closely related field to adult palliative care”. It is an active and total approach to care, embracing physical, emotional, social and spiritual elements. It focuses on quality of life for the child and support for the whole family.
