Bella Hutchison started this petition to UPMC Palliative and Supportive Institute

Every year, millions of children are diagnosed with terminal illnesses. This puts a strain on their physical health, their mental health, and their families alike. Parents who are not medically trained are faced with a large medical task-- to care for their dying child. 

But, this awful event could be made more bearable for both the child and their families. Pediatric palliative care facilities, like the George Mark Children's House allow families to catch a break from the harsh hospital scene and surround themselves with positive memories before they have to say goodbye to their loved ones. 

Currently, there are only two of these pediatric facilities in the United States. This, compared to the UK, is 53 less than they have, and the United States is forty times its size. 

This isn't right. Every child deserves one of these wonderful facilities close to home in case something tragic were to happen. You can help make this a possibility by signing this petition and working towards the change.
