Eyecatcher For children

"My Story"

On the occasion of the “Day of Action against Pain” on 4 June, 2013, former patients who were treated in the “Lighthouse” children’s pain ward of the German Paediatric Pain Centre wrote their stories down in order to share them with other children and adolescents. Over 60 patient stories were collected by the German Children’s Pain Center for publication.

A warm thank you to all who supported the action by telling their stories here!
