Review for Starlight Children's Foundation Midwest, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

the hospital setting as well as community settings.

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

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

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & As a child life specialist, I utilized Starlight with families in the hospital and have seen the joy brought to their faces both with Fun Centers and Great Escape events. .
