Each year we feature a family who has been impacted by the SHINE program and share their story. Click the button below to read about this year's featured family and to see a collection of all the featured SHINE families.


The SHINE program (Sharing, Healing, Inspiring, Nurturing, Enduring) is the perinatal and pediatric palliative care service within Blank Children’s Hospital. 


Referrals to the SHINE program will come from a variety of sources: obstetricians, perinatology physicians, pediatricians, and primary care physicians.  If you have questions please call the palliative care office at 241-5750.

Thanksgiving Day, a day we are thankful for the children that we were blessed with for such a short time and grateful for the friends that surrounded us.


Join us as we continue to support and encourage families faced with the loss of an infant.
