12 Kids of Starlight: Meet Cori


We are getting there! Don’t let these kids down. 

With just a few weeks left to go until the holidays, can we collectively ensure that the 100 hospitals across Canada asking for Starlight’s help receive it in time? No nurse, doctor or caregiver would ever want to see the people who rely on them disappointed because of a lack of funds. Give to 12 Kids of Starlight today.

Today, we are honoured to introduce you to Cori.

Cori has a lesion in her brain which causes seizures and sudden paralysis. She has had surgery to remove them, but one remains on the area which controls motor skills, and is therefore inoperable. As a result, Cori has to take a lot of medication with horrible side effects, and never knows when a seizure will occur.

She lives in a constant state of fear that today could be the day she’s rushed back into hospital – and around the holidays, that’s a particularly hard thing to live with. That’s why she’s campaigning to raise $2,500 for Starlight, to give peace of mind to all seriously ill children across the country so no matter where they may be, they will be showered with love and gifts both during the holidays and year round.

For every $10 donation received to 12 Kids of Starlight at 12kids.starlightcanada.org, you will be entered into a prize pool worth over $20,000, including 2 Economy Class return tickets for travel to any Air Canada scheduled destination in North America including Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean. Today, we’re including a 10k white gold ring worth $1,300!
