Book: Caring for Your Child With Hydranencephaly

Hydranencephaly data base







At some point in the life of our children we are going to be asked to make difficult choices for them.  This page offers links with information on Do Not Resuscitate orders and hospice or palliative care.   It is here for information purposes only.  There is very little information available on the internet regarding children so most of these links contain info aimed at adults.  At one point or another most of us have felt pressured to agree to DNR orders for our children.  The links in this site will hopefully help with figuring out what your and your children's rights are, what these orders do and do not mean, etc.  The legalities involved differ from state to state and country to country so when reading info make sure you know where it's talking about. information on death & dying, palliative care, hospice care, etc

Of all the links that previously were on this page, this is the only one that works. More will be added as they're found.
