Creative Director / Brand Leader
This is a passion project. I have been blessed to be a part of this project. I am not profiting financially from this. Outcome is far better than paper money. My job is to ensure consisitency throughout the entire brand. I created the logo and am currently in the process of creating lots of other things. This project has also inspired me to become a hospice volunteer. Please visit our website to learn more about LBH. Maybe it will speak to you and you too will be compelled to help.
Every day in the United States, over 5,000 children with chronic conditions are within the last six months of their lives. Every year, over 56,000 children die in this country, over 80% in hospitals. Many hospitals are providing high quality hospice and palliative care. Imagine this care being provided in a home designed to care for family and friends as well as the child.
Ladybug House will provide support to families during the unimaginable in a home full of life, love and respect. We will meet families’ needs as they define them for as long as they need us. We will celebrate every day, every moment, and every life.
In the United States there are only two palliative care homes for children: George Mark Children’s House in San Leandro, CA and Ryan House in Phoenix, AZ. In the United Kingdom there are 53 homes and our neighbors in Vancouver, BC just built their second home last year.
As a nonprofit, the goal of Ladybug House is to build and operate a freestanding community-based Palliative Care Home based in Seattle. We will offer free end-of-life care to children and young adults with life-limiting illnesses and family respite for rest and renewal from the daily demands of caring for a very ill child.
