Thank you to everyone who attended Circle of Care Duende Gala! 

A pediatric cancer journey is long. And exhausting. It tests the strongest warriors and can feel never-ending and almost impossible. 

Any parent facing their child’s diagnosis and treatment will hear the words, “How do you do it?” 

But somehow, the families who face this journey find a way to rise up. And carry on. 

In their darkest hours, an inexplicable spirit and strength climbs up from within. 

In Spain, they call that DUENDE. 

At Circle of Care, we witness the essence of duende every day, in our children and their families. 

We honor these brave children, their courageous parents, and each doctor and nurse whose passion and dedication is an inspiration to us all.
