“DANBURY — Efforts to complete one of the only dedicated children’s hospice units in the nation will be supported, in part, by a gentleman who has famously played one of our nation’s founding fathers on Broadway. Regional Hospice will air a virtual fundraiser, “Wish Upon the North Star,” on Thursday, December 3, at 7 pm, to benefit its forthcoming residential hospice space for babies and children, the North Star.

Kelly Cervantes is a national advocate, activist, and speaker for epilepsy research and parenting support.”
