The PANDA palliative care team promotes quality of life for children, adolescents, and young adults with serious illness. The team offers advanced symptom management for patients. In addition, the team provides psychosocial-spiritual support for patients and their family members as desired.
As part of this program, the PANDA team provides holistic care in the way of integrative medicine therapies such as acupuncture, acupressure, aromatherapy, massage, mindfulness, healing touch, and craniosacral therapy. Many of these services are not covered by medical insurance and therefore need to be provided based on charitable donations or grant funding. Every year the PANDA Team relies on funds raised during the Race for Every Child to purchase the supplies necessary and for therapists to perform these integrative medicine modalities that have become integral to the care of our patients and their families. All the funds our team raises will be used to offer integrative medicine services provided by the PANDA Team at Children's National Hospital.
