Hadley Vlahos, RN, will be the keynote speaker for Houston Hospice’s 23rd Butterfly Luncheon. Hadley is a hospice nurse and palliative care advocate, as well as a New York Times bestselling author and TikTok star.

Hadley is at the forefront of reshaping perspectives on end-of-life care and her book, The In-Between: Unforgettable Encounters During Life’s Final Moments, is a personal memoir offering profound insights into the transformative power of compassion, promising an enriching and uplifting experience for all attendees.

“Nurse Hadley” also shares hospice stories with 1.8 million TikTok followers.

This year’s event holds special significance because it coincides with National Volunteer Week. Volunteers are an integral part of the care Houston Hospice provides to patients and families, often bringing a calm, selfless presence with their visits. Dedicated volunteers will be celebrated and honored at this year’s luncheon while raising vital funds for Houston Hospice and its pediatric hospice program.

Butterfly Program
The Butterfly Program cares for Houston Hospice's most vulnerable patients – children aged 18 years or younger. As one of only two hospice centers in the greater Houston area with a specialized pediatrics care team, this team's medical care and devotion to the child is unmatched.

Caring for children is not a one-size-fits-all scenario because their growth and development is ever-changing. The dedicated team at Houston Hospice is skilled at providing the appropriate level of care for each child’s needs.

The Butterfly Team enhances the quality of life of pediatric patients and their families by minimizing pain and discomfort and providing emotional and spiritual support. Since its inception in 1992, the Houston Hospice Butterfly Program has cared for hundreds of patients and families.
