Starlight Children's Foundation - Global Office
June 27, 2011
Being a parent of a child with the sickle cell anemia disease, I know, first hand, all the emotional stressors, which can be associated with the disease for both the child and the family . To that end, the Starlight Children's Foundation of Florida -through its different activities, one of which is the Great Escape, has helped alleviate some of the daily stressors, by giving an opportunity to the entire family to share some quality time together and with other families. This sharing/learning time is very therapeutic. The hands-on activities for the children, the food, the gifts, etc., have made Great Escape even funnier.
I am very appreciative and grateful for such an organization for being there not only for the children with chronic health issues, but for their families as well.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would, contingent upon financial resources, plan more getaway activities during holidays and breaks such as: retreats with the entire family whre sharing and learning can take place.
