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.

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.
