Pain management for children with terminal or chronic illness is often relegated to a measured and conservatively controlled amount of medication because of their size and likelihood of dependency. The result is often that the child spends what few precious moments he or she may have left with their family in a drug-induced haze.
Complementary pain management therapies, such as massage therapy, are among the ways that families of children with terminal illness will seek to supplement pain management. They do this not just to deepen their parental bond but also help comfort their child when they most need comforting. Currently, each one counts is the only organization in the US dedicated solely to complementary pain management for terminally ill children.
University Table Tennis Program
Launched in 2011, the University Table Tennis Program brings EOC to college campuses. Student reps from the Student Athletic Advisory Board manage this table tennis tournament for charity. Entry fees are donated back to EOC. EOC donates ping pong tables and fun is had by all. Many Table Tennis tournaments have culminated in a check presentation to EOC during the finals of a men’s basketball game.
EOC Golf Outing & Silent Auction
For the past 7 years, the EOC annual golf outing has brought together more than two hundred friends of EOC every year for a fun outing in a beautiful setting at the Waccabuc Country Club in Waccabuc, NY. The event, followed by an EOC presentation and dinner also includes a silent auction featuring items such as Yankee tickets, hotel stays, bottles of wine, sports equipment and memorabilia, etc.
Complementary pain therapy consists of more than just massage. However, massage is the most common because it is proven to ease pain in terminally ill patients.
Massage is especially comforting for babies and very young children with terminal illness. Impact reports from each one counts massage therapy training participants include accounts that describe immediate and noticeable relaxation and restful sleep in children as young as 8-months-old as a direct result of therapeutic massage.
We have partnered with Tina Allen, President of Liddle Kidz Foundation and certified pediatric massage therapy trainer, to host complimentary training sessions for 10-20 massage therapists across the country. The only requirement we ask of attendees is to dedicate 50 hours of pain management massage at local pediatric hospitals.
The human touch can be a very powerful tool in palliative and hospice care-giving and each one counts recognizes that, given the right training, this simple ability to soothe can make a world of difference in the quality of life for a child in pain.
