Butterfly Breakfast Bash In Denver To Support Children With Serious Illnesses

Join The Butterfly Breakfast Bash featuring The Hazel Miller Jazz Trio to benefit The Butterfly Program, providing support for children with serious illnesses. The Butterfly Breakfast Bash will be held in downtown Denver at the historic McNichols Civic Event Center and was made possible by a generous grant from Catering By Design.

The goal of the program is to improve the quality of life for the child and their families .The Butterfly Program admits children equitably on the basis of need, not the ability to pay for services. Community support has a profound impact to help provide care to these children including counselling, chaplain visits and bereavement services which are not reimbursed.

The Butterfly Program, originally founded by Children’s Hospital Colorado and Porter Hospice of Centura Health at Home, has filled a unique and relatively empty niche in the Denver metropolitan community since 1999. The program was initially designed to provide comprehensive pediatric palliative care, serving children and their families who had been diagnosed with a life limiting illness.  Since then, medical science and technology has enhanced the life of children with chronic and terminal diseases.  The program once aimed to help children primarily at the end of life is now inclusive of children and their families who are contending with serious illnesses.
