Long Beach palliative care program
In an effort to aid adult patients battling terminal illnesses, Long Beach Memorial’s Palliative Care Program has started ‘The Bucket List Project.’ The program assists those who are too sick to fulfill their “final wish” experiences.

For the second year in a row, friends, families and community members will come together for the Palliative Care Program Pursuit Walk. The walk is being held to raise awareness of palliative care, a specialized area of care offering physical and emotional support and comfort to pediatric patients with chronic or serious illnesses, as well as to raise funds to expand the supportive/palliative care program at Miller Children’s.
