The common family activities most of us take for granted day in and day out…playing video games, going to the park, a trip to the zoo, go on a boat ride – take on a whole new meaning for families with seriously ill children. Extended hospital stays and grueling treatment routines leave these sick children little time to be joyful kids. At Starlight, we understand how important it is for them to be able to spend precious moments together, just like any other family. Our unique programs focus on the family as a whole and provide an escape from the everyday reality of a prolonged illness. Through Starlight, families are able to share the "little" things most of us do on any given day – and create big memories that last a lifetime.
