Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest is a truly empowering organization. It empowers its staff, volunteers, and interns to be creative, innovative workers. It empowers its families and children to be happy by providing safe-spaces where every kid can just be a kid, without stares or judgement. I am very grateful for the time I've been able to spend with this organization.

Starlight Children's Foundation is a GREAT organization. For over 20 years Starlight Children's Foundation has been dedicated to improving the lives or children with serious medical conditions and their families by providing in and out of hospital activities, entertainment and education. Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest Chapter services the states of Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan. I have been a volunteer for Starlight Children's Foundation of Colorado and am now a volunteer for Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest. I truely enjoy both the in-hospital activites including Fun Centers, Hospital Happenings and Starlight Bears and the out of hospital Great Escape program. The kids always look forward to our next event.

Since joining Starlight Children’s Foundation Midwest two years ago as their executive director, I have been continually impressed by the strength and resilience of our Starlight families. They take whatever we can offer them—family outings to ballgames or bowling alleys, the Fun Centers we place in hospitals, the Halloween party we just held at a board member’s office—and make it their own. These kids, their sisters and brothers and parents, literally fight for their lives every day and still find a way to make the most of the joy that comes their way. I come to work each day, determined to find more ways to help. Starlight kids and families, you’re my inspiration!

Having recently joined Starilght, I am more impressed than ever with the Foundation's impact on the lives of the children and families we serve. Lives truly are brightened; pain, fear and isolation are reduced. Thanks to Starlight sick kids get to be just regular kids for a little while and parents get the joy of watching that happen! Check us out and join the fun we create!

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

Hospital visits, Great Escape family outings, and conversations with kids and parents.

My grand niece was born with Cystic Fibrosis over 30 years ago. In part because of CFRI she has been able to marry and have a child. This is a miracle that was not thought possible at the time of her birth. Thank you, CFRI, not only for the gift of life, but even more for providing research that has resulted in real quality of life for my grand niece and so many oters like her!

Without Starlight's support of pediatric hospitals throughout the DC area and surrounding states - and the country - and overseas - I can't imagine how we could afford all the important programs they provide for hospitalized kids. Thank you Starlight.

Starlight Children's Foundation is a wonderful non-profit organization that brings joy, and happiness to very sick children and their families. I started interning at Starlight Midwest in June 2012, but had experienced Starlight's impact prior to arriving here. A seriously ill friend of mine got to use a fun centre while being in the hospital. It's so nice to be able to have a distraction, and just spend time with family and friends to forget about the hospital atmosphere. Starlight also does "Great Escapes" which allow for kids and families to experience normalcy and have fun being an average kid. These events are free for the starlight child and their family to attend, which allows for a stress free day. I'm very proud and grateful to say I was able to work with such an amazing foundation, helpful team, generous donors, and all around caring, good-hearted people that do such great things for sick kids and their families. I will continue to be heavily involved with this foundation and have had a truly rewarding experience.

The Great!

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

the reactions and comments of families, kids, volunteers, coworkers. This is a very rewarding foundation to be a part of.

Ways to make it better...

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

help to get the word out, make Starlight Midwest better known as we aren't reaching as many families due to the fact that many sick kids and their families are unaware we exist. We want to be able to help as many sick children and their families as possible!

This organization is passionate about creating exciting and fun activities for children who critically and chronically ill. It's so great to see families go out and have a good time without having to worry about what others will think. The activies help families bond with others and allows them to have something to look forward to. Everyone in the organization was so sweet and you could tell that they were passionate about the work that they were doing. I would definitely recommend this organization to other people.

Starlight Midwest is one of the greatest nonprofits I have ever been involved with. Their mission to help chronically ill children and their familes cope with the pain of illnesses is reflected in everything that they do.
