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!

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.

As a person who is involved in the planning and execution of programming, I've been given the opportunity to see first hand what an incredible difference this organization makes in the lives of the children and families involved. The stories I hear from these families everyday are truly inspirational and I feel so grateful to be able to play a tiny part in relieving the stress and isolation so many families with sick children face in their everyday lives.

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

This past weekend we held a Father's Day event at Lincoln Park Zoo where one family drove four hours with five kids, one being wheelchair bound, to attend the event and be with their fellow Starlight families. If that doesn't speak to the incredible work this organization does and the relationship it forms with its' families, I don't know what does.

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

Find a way to spread the word to more families who need this type of programming so every seriously ill or injured child and their family across the midwest could be a part of this incredible program.

Starlight is an excellent advocate and resource for children and families coping with chronic illness and hospitalization. Their Wii Fun Centers allow children to experience a piece of "normal life" even when hospitalized and bring an instant smile to the children's (and often times, other family member's) faces. The Great Escapes program is an excellent way to provide families activities that unite them as a family and social support from other families.

the hospital setting as well as community settings.

advocate for them to be able to conduct Great Escape events in multiple cities & states!
