Parents of two children with life-limiting illness share how they learned what palliative care REALLY is. At first they misunderstood but gradually they learned how palliative care was about helping them achieve their parental goals, to get home and be comfortable. It is about helping the children and family THRIVE in the Here and Now. Palliative care isn’t about giving up. It’s about making the most of the time we have. Not all children are going to get better. You have to be OK in the in-between.
