When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, the day-to-day joys of childhood take a back seat to the rigors of treatment and hospitalization. Starlight Children’s Foundation™ is a leading global health and education charity working to embrace, empower and enrich the lives of children from illness to wellness.
Since 1983, Starlight has been improving the quality of life for children with serious medical conditions through programming that helps kids cope with the experiences of prolonged illness. Starlight’s innovative programs have been proven to distract children from their pain and lessen the need for pain medication, help young people better understand and manage their illness, and connect families with others facing similar challenges so that no one feels alone.
Each year Starlight enriches the lives of millions of children globally by providing ongoing support to children, parents and siblings in all U.S. states and every province in Canada, and is a leading children’s charity in the United Kingdom and Australia. To learn more visit www.starlight.org.
