Using the case study “Maddie‘s Story,” this concluding chapter discusses how specialized pediatric palliative care helps terminally ill children and their families navigate through their complex journey at end of life and beyond. Through pediatric palliative care, children can experience a “good death,” and family and friends can indeed experience peace and opportunity.
