Accomplishing the extraordinary in the face of serious illness. Little Stars tells the surprisingly life-affirming stories of young people living with life-limiting illnesses. Against the odds these youngsters are making the most of every moment thanks to the support of their loved ones, working in harmony with passionate 'palliative care' teams. Regrettably, not all conditions can be cured. However, many children with life-limiting conditions will live for years, if not decades. Currently, 20 million children can benefit from palliative care, but access remains an issue. But for those who are receiving care, the results are incredible. These remarkable stories show young people finding hope, love, joy and attainment in the face of the inevitable.Written by
Very well done! As a physician, I see a big need for pediatric palliative medicine in the American health care system. This documentary provides an effective mechanism to educate families of patients and all health care providers about palliative care for children. The film highlights the lives of individuals ranging from infants to young adults, with both rare and common conditions, in both developed and developing countries. The film also interviews individuals who provide palliative care for their patients and see first hand the benefits of their care. Despite difficult topics, this film is uplifting and inspiring. I plan to host of screening of it for nurses and physicians in my hospital, and I encourage others to do the same. Little Stars raises awareness about the desperately needed - yet under appreciated - field of pediatric palliative medicine.
