On November 6th, TVO aired an episode of The Agenda with Steve Paikin, where The Agenda learned about Emily's House, a Toronto hospice for children and families facing life-threatening illnesses and named for a young patient with a rare and terminal neurodegenerative disease who recently passed away. At Emily's House, children get the care they need with all the comforts of home for themselves and their loved ones.
