Courageous Parents Network is a destination created by families, for families, to support, guide and strengthen them as they care for very sick children. Here you will find wisdom from fellow parents and pediatric care providers to help you be the best parent you can be to your child and children—and get through each moment.

Connect to Family Stories

You worry about your family, your child’s future. You may even dare to worry about yourself. You’re not alone! Videos, podcasts and private discussion connect you to parents courageously sharing personal stories and experiences from their journey.

JOIN the Network, and you can add your name to our Interactive Map which shows you some of the parents and providers in the Network and where they're from.

Learn to Navigate and Advocate

Understanding the system, communicating effectively, and making good decisions for your child can feel challenging and frustrating. Perspectives from pediatric care providers, together with professionally reviewed resources, are here to help you find your way.
