Why Starlight Matters.

“…when a child is sick, sometimes we focus so much on the illness that as parents, we forget about PLAY. That someone thought about fun is a blessing that I will never be able to fully express.”
– Rachel, Starlight Mom

When you support Starlight, you’re helping provide smiles, laughter and joy at a time when children need it most.

Starlight Children’s Foundation partners with experts to improve the life and health of kids and families around the world.

For over 23 years, Starlight Children’s Foundation has been transforming the lives of Canadian children who live with serious illness and their families. What makes us unique is that we are there for the entire journey—from the emergency room to recovery.

While in-hospital, Starlight provides distraction, entertainment and relief from the stress and boredom of hospitalization.

When out-of-hospital, Starlight children benefit from our ‘Escapes’ and ‘Wishes’ programs— giving them an opportunity to leave the ‘sick’ behind, create special family memories and return home with a renewed sense of strength and hope.

Starlight is looking to expand to more hospitals and in more communities across Canada. The need is tremendous—and it is only with the generous support of our donors and partners that we will be able to reach and impact these special children, who so greatly benefit from our programs.

Your support makes our Starlight programs possible – help us reach more of the over one million children in Canada who live with serious illness or life-altering injury.
