Masonicare Partners Home Health & Hospice Celebrates Ten-Year Anniversary of its Pedi-Pal Program for Seriously Ill Children

September 3, 2013

Hartford, CT, September 3,…….. Masonicare Partners Home Health & Hospice will mark the ten-year anniversary of the inauguration of their pediatric palliative care or “Pedi-Pal” Program with a celebration to be held on Friday evening, September 27, at the Manchester Country Club.  The Pedi-Pal Gala will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and will feature hors d’oeuvres, dancing, a raffle and a cash bar.

For ten years, Masonicare Partners Pedi-Pal program has been the only homecare program in Connecticut to provide palliative care to children from infancy to 18 years of age who have a life-threatening illness.  The comprehensive Pedi-Pal program provides nursing staff, social workers, spiritual support, volunteers, expressive arts, the creature comfort pet therapy program, and more.  Christine Rodriguez, Pedi-Pal Coordinator, explains.  “We all come together to help and support not only the child, but his or her entire family as well through this very difficult time.”  Donations to Masonicare’s Pedi-Pal make this special palliative care program available to children and their families in the greater Hartford area, regardless of their ability to pay. 

To purchase tickets, which are $25.00 each, please contact John Roush at 860-290-6737 or email him at jroush@masonicare.org. Please note that the number of attendees is limited, and tickets must be purchased by September 20.
