Women's Conference - Day 2!

What a great conference! So inspiring and empowering and simply just fabulous.

The conference concluded with the Minerva awards, wherein 4 remarkable women were honored for their courageous and tireless work helping others less fortunate. One of the winners was Dr. Kathy Hull. She is the co-founder of the George Mark Children's House. I knew nothing about this before yesterday.

George Mark Children’s House is the first and only freestanding residential pediatric palliative care center in the United States, and is located in San Leandro, CA. It offers a unique alternative for children with life-limiting illnesses, and their families. They are setting the standard for pediatric palliative care.

Even more amazing is that assistance is provided regardless of the financial situation of the families, thanks to the generosity of donors.

Please consider taking a moment to check out the George Mark Children's House website. What an amazing thing they are doing.
