What is CHPCC and who are Johnny's Angels?

What is Children’s Hospice & Palliative Care Coalition?

Founded in 2001 ... Children’s Hospice & Palliative Care Coalition is a social movement led by children’s hospitals, hospices, home health and grassroots agencies, and individuals to improve care for children with life-threatening conditions and their families.

What does Children’s Hospice & Palliative Care Coalition do?

The Coalition serves as a reminder that children['s]... medical and emotional needs are unique and must be honored within the medical system. Children’s Hospice & Palliative Care Coalition provides training and support to hospice teams... so that when they are caring for a dying child they are able to meet the medical, emotional and spiritual needs of the child and the family.

Johnny is known for his support of children's charities. The most commonly known are the Great Ormond Street Hospital, Make a Wish, and Children's Hospice & Palliative Care Coalition. On October 7, 2006, Johnny received the LA Children's Hospital Courage to Care Award. In his acceptance speech, he refers to Dustin's "Today is a Gift" bracelet, a bracelet Johnny wears that is from CHPCC. He most recently was seen wearing it at the Japan press junket for Alice In Wonderland last March.
