I co-founded Starlight thirty years ago by helping one seriously ill little boy live his dream. Here we are three decades later and Starlight is a fully professionalized, multi-national non-profit that has lifted up the lives of over 60 million kids, and their Moms and Dads and siblings. I could not be more proud. The incredible efficiency of our professional team, coupled with the same relentless drive to always put the children first, are humbling and give me great pride at every meeting (and there are a lot!) Go Team!

As a Board member and a volunteer with Starlight Canada, I have experienced first hand the emotion of joy for a group of kids when I joined them on a plane on the way to the North Pole.

Giving back is something that I enjoy doing all my life and in most cases I get more reward out of that the families we serve would know. We have fulfilled over 100 wishes in the past 10 years and delivered many fund centers to hospitals because of the generosity of many of our corporate sponsorships. this is the essence of Starlight Children's Foundation.

I continue to be amazed by the strength of many of the children and families that we serve. They are the reason I am involved and will continue to be a part of the Starlight Family in the US and in Canada.

Attending a Starlight event can be an eye-opening experience. Unless you have been involved directly on a day to day basis with a chronically ill child and family, it is hard to imagine the sacrifices every family member makes every day. No day is a given, no day has a set schedule. Starlight progams and Starbrightworld help the children and their families escape, for a few moments, the anxiety, stress and pain that they feel every day.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In my contact with the children and their families.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Reach more children with more services every day - but they need you to make that happen!
