Starlight Midwest is an amazing organization. Through them our family has been able to participate in so many wonderful events. Having a special needs child often makes it difficult to participate in things such as going to the zoo or attending a ball game. Starlight Midwest takes all of the hassle away and let's us enjoy just like any other family!

As a non profit hospital we rely on donations of toys, games and books to allow our children to have less boredoom and stress while in the hospital. The items that Starlight provides allow us to help our kids heal faster and use our funds for the medical side of the hospital. Starlight has excellent quality and timeliness and they are very good at communication regarding what is available and how to receive it. They are a 1st class organization and we are blessed to be a partner with them.

Starlight Chrildren's foundation Midwest is a organization that works beyond imagination to help kids with serious illness/disabilities and their families to have enjoyable/worry free time with the numerous events/programs they offer. My family had a great time in a baseball game. It's the best gift to be able to see a big smile in our child's face that spend lots of her time in a hospital for surgeries. It's a great feeling to be able to have recreational time with out worry the financial part. Starlight is a great organization that help us to be able to have worry free family time. Thanks!

We were introduced to Starlight when my son was very young and undergoing treatment for renal insufficiency. We have been able to attend many of the events in the Milwaukee area and a couple in the Chicago area. They treat the whole family with dignity and enthusiasm. What a joy to be welcomed into this group!

Starlight Children's Foundation is a wonderful organization giving kids experiences that they might not otherwise get. We were lucky enough to receive tickets for our family of 4 to see Kenny Chesney in Milwaukee, WI last weekend. Wow! What an incredible experience. What topped off the whole night was the fact that it didn't cost us anything. That was really great. We would not have been able to go if it weren't for Starlight. We have thoroughly enjoyed their escapes over the past couple of years. This one topped the list, though.

My daughter has alot of medical problems. We have been with this program for almost 2 years. It is so nice to go some where where you don't worry about allergies etc. I know it is safe for her. I like it that we can meet other families. She went to the Glee Prom and that was memories to last a life time.Also she met some wonderful friends. When you have a child with medical problems you don't get to do many outtings because they may be unsafe for the child or money. Medical bills are expensive. It is so nice to have a day to laugh. Best of all to see your child smile is priceless. Thank you Starlight for being there for us..
