The 25th Anniversary of the BIG-TO-DO brings us back to Zoo Atlanta for a day of wildlife fun featuring giant pandas, orangutans, gorillas, giraffes, black rhinos, zebras and more! Bring your family and friends to support our Pediatric Program, specialized end-of-life care which meets the comprehensive medical, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of pediatric hospice patients and their families.

Why support the BIG-TO-DO?
Our greatest need is for support of hospice care. Visiting Nurse has one of only two pediatric hospice programs in Georgia, providing care at home or in our inpatient facility, the Hospice Atlanta Center. Pediatric patients require care that is more than double that of adult end-of-life services. In most instances, reimbursement from Medicaid or private insurance covers only a portion of their care. Your support enables us to care for those who need our services, regardless of their ability to pay.

“The level of care we’ve received with Visiting Nurse makes me feel like I can handle this journey. It’s pretty hard to make life easier when your baby has cancer, but Visiting Nurse has managed to. We are forever grateful to our nurse for taking the time to build a daily relationship with our family that supports our little hero.” – Dawn H., mother of three-year old Matthew, who suffers from a rare brain tumor
