Spreading Holiday Cheer to our Littlest of Patients

As you are getting ready for the rush of the Holidays and family gatherings  MJHS is gearing up for one of our favorite times… the holiday celebration for our pediatric hospice patients and their families.


What started as a small toy collection ten years ago has now grown into a cherished annual tradition. Our MJHS care team dresses up in costumes, sings holiday songs, and delivers presents to each child from their wish list. Thanks to the generosity of our MJHS Young Leadership Council members and donors, almost 200 toys, games, and art supplies were purchased for our kids last year!


Mae was one of the children who enjoyed these gifts last year. She was one of our youngest patients when she began receiving care from MJHS. Mae’s parents immigrated to the United States. With no family nearby, the holidays were particularly difficult for them. Having gifts delivered to them by a care team member dressed up brought holiday cheer and lifted their spirits. It gave them a feeling of support and love while navigating their daughter’s care.

Supporting Families in Need

Mary was afraid to eat dinner because she had no one to help her go to the bathroom at night. Learn how we were able to provide additional care for her.

Making a Difference in the Life of a Pediatric Hospice Patient

"I hope that no family ever has to go through the pain caused by a terminal diagnosis, but if they do, your support enables MJHS Hospice to be by their side."

“Every single day I thank MJHS doctors, nurses, social workers, as well as the chaplain and music therapist for their compassion, care and being our life saver.”
