The experience of grieving is different for all of us, but we can learn from those that are on that journey. Palliative care and end of life care for children focuses on the whole family including siblings. Parents and medical professionals often worry that siblings “get lost” during the illness.
During this Firefly Chat session join Carol May, RN, MSN, MBA, CHPPN, Director of the Supportive Care Program at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and bereaved sibling, Kyler Moore to explore how the death of his brother affected him and his family. We will discuss how language can be both helpful and harmful. Throughout the discussion we will highlight on how the experience impacted his life and his relationship with his mom and his surviving siblings.
