Hannah’s Story – a teen in hospice

The Carousel Pediatric Team at Kansas City Hospice meets some pretty spectacular young people, like Hannah, a teen needing hospice care. Watch her story.

Update – since the story was filmed, doctors found a new treatment and Hannah was able to graduate from hospice. Now she looks forward to graduating from high school!

Carousel cares for 70 to 100 kiddos each year, from babies through young adults. This team consists of pediatric physicians, nurses, CNAs, social workers, chaplains, art and music therapists. They tend to the needs of the whole family, making sure that parents and siblings have the emotional and spiritual support they need.

Mustache Month for Carousel is a social media FUN-raiser that raises funds needed to make sure each child in Kansas City receives expert care, regardless of the family’s financial situation. Join us!
