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!
Starlight gives us opportunities to attend special events and connect with other families facing similar challenges. We would not be able to afford these events if not for Starlights generousity We have been a starlight family since 2007!
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 has been a joy to be part of . The events and the experince of meeting other families is wonderful. It has given my family time away to enjoy ourselves and break away from stress. Thank you Starlight and keep up the fantastic work.

We are also grateful to the wonderful staff, volunteers, and most of all the event sponsors, we are truly grateful for your selfless generosity.
Starlight is been exceptional providing to my entire family with great ways to enjoy events that takes our mind away from hospital, pain, medical bills, etc. It's nice to have the opportunity for my 6 kids to enjoy an event were they can see their little sister laugh and having fun. Once in while is nice to have the opportunity to take our kids to enjoy an activity that it's free, don't need to worry about the financial stress. Starlight is been providing my entire family with an amazing time in every single event.
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.
Starlight is beautiful & special in our family's hearts. They provide possibilities to children that wouldn't have opportunities otherwise.
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..
My family has been involved with The Starlight Children's Foundation for almost 10 years now. We enjoy many events as well as making many friends. We have several that we have been friends with the entire 10 years. It is awesome to be able to do things we normally would not be able to afford to do, thankfully Starlight give us opportunities to do things we would not be able to partake in.
Having a daughter who has spent MANY days inpatient in the hospital, the fun centers have been a true help. Not only for my daughter who is in the hospital, but for her sister's who also get the chance to play with the fun centers. They have a blast and the Wii definitely makes time pass faster for us all!!
The hospital magicians are sure to bring a smile to everyone's face and are truly enjoyed by my family. We have seen them in outpatient waiting areas as well as in house.
The girls over the years have made friendships with not only other Starlight families, but with volunteers and employees as well.
A Child's smile is life's greatest blessings... Starlight has give my family many!! And, for that we are forever grateful...
Starlight has been a Godsend to my family. They've enabled us to enjoy going to places and doing things we'd never be able to afford on our own. Starlight helps us to remember what's really important in life: sharing time with the ones you love. Everyone I've ever dealt with at Starlight has been wonderful, too. I'd give them 2 thumbs up!! :)
