Pedi Pal is compassionate, primarily home-based care for children age 18 and younger who have a life-limiting illness for which curative treatment is available but may not be successful. Pedi Pal focuses on the comprehensive management of the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the child who is ill and their family.
