“Words cannot express how grateful
we are for the exceptional care that
Piper has been receiving while at the
Children’s Hospital at Palms West.
Going in as a scared parent, the
doctors, nurses and the entire
staff are always here for us.
They provide constant
support, comfort and
knowledge that is far
beyond what any parent
would expect. We have
been treated like a part of
their family, showing Piper
care that is beyond words.”
