Mustache Month


February is Mustache Month at Kansas City Hospice, a benefit for Carousel, our pediatric and perinatal hospice program. Your support is key to helping these amazing families get the care they need.

Our Carousel Pediatric Care program provides extraordinary, compassionate care for our most fragile patients and their families. Donors like YOU ensure families can focus their time, energy and love on the most precious thing — each other. Choose to fund a need that fits in your budget while giving families here in Kansas City some much-needed support.

How Your Support Makes A Difference

Carousel cares for kids needing pediatric hospice and palliative care across the greater Kansas City area.

Kansas City Hospice provides compassionate care for 50-100 children in our Carousel Pediatric Care program in any one year. While we all wish every child will have the opportunity to grow up healthy and strong, there are still many childhood diseases for which treatment will not end in a cure.

Each and every day (and night) our dedicated pediatric team attends to the needs of children and their families. They offer professional healthcare including symptom management as well as spiritual, emotional, and psychological support for each kiddo and for their entire family.

We are proud to be recognized by area healthcare providers as the leading provider of pediatric hospice care in our community.

Cut to the Chase!
