The stress of the holiday season can be tough on everyone, but what if you or your family is also dealing with a serious or chronic illness?

Turning Point, the center for hope and healing, Kansas City's highly respected patient support organization, has four tips for those families to help them navigate the holiday season.

Turning Point just celebrated its first year as part of The University of Kansas Hospital, the region's premier academic medical center. 

The number of people accessing Turning Point grew 55 percent in the past year to more than 8,000 people helped. And the center added many new programs for patients and their families facing heart failure, stroke, cancer and neurological diseases.
