Initiatives 

We have only just begun, please check back often as we continue to grow.

We welcome and embrace the opportunity, with gratitude, to share the story of our son Sage as well as our experiences both in the hospital and now through our grief and bereavement. We believe with unparalleled conviction that this is our truest and most impactful offering in directing attention and awareness towards the needs of families, doctors, and care-givers that are affected by complex medical conditions and loss. To date, we have spoken at multiple events and fundraisers to support the funding of AVM research, to increase resources and support for affected and grieving families, and to emphasize the value of palliative care specialists within the hospital and beyond.

We believe that bereavement care IS healthcare. 

 

We work with clinicians to advocate for progressive, nuanced, and individualized approaches in end of life and bereavement care.
