Mission Statement

Helping seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities. When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, the day-to-day joys of childhood take a back seat to the rigors of treatment and hospitalization. For nearly 30 years, Starlight Children's Foundation has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for children around the globe with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries by providing entertainment, education and family activities that help them cope with the pain, fear and isolation of prolonged illness.

Description

Starlight is a global children’s charity that serves more than 3 million children and family members through an array of in-hospital, online and community based programs. For 28 years, Starlight Children’s Foundation has been dedicated to ameliorating the terrible effects of childhood illness through entertainment, education and family activities. Starlight’s programsare developed using existing research findings, to help children better understand, manage and cope with their illness; reduce fear and pain; help families find others going through similar experiences so they feel less alone; and help families stay close together during a time when they are normally torn apart.
