location in the atrium at SickKids for this day only). The funds raised will

    Palliative Care helps to provide critically ill children with optimal
comfort and quality of life. Sadly, this may include preparing for a
compassionate death.
    Music Therapy for the palliative care of sick children may include
singing, writing songs, playing instruments as well as listening to music and
moving to music.
