About

Description
Starlight Starbright is a national nonprofit organziation. For more than two decades, Starlight Starbright has provided programs that offer children ways to cope with the social, emotional, and medical aspects of serious illness and has provided families with a community of support and understanding. Starlight Starbright strives to foster, provide, and encourage essential and normal life experiences for children and families facing serious illness; to educate and help sick children better manage their illnesses; to minimize the negative and destructive emotional impact of life-threatening disease on the family; and to provide pediatric care facilities with ongoing support in the areas of play, coping, self-expression, creativity, achievement, and learning, which are vital to a child's growth and development. Starlight Starbright offers a variety of innovative programs and products that empower, educate, entertain, and inspire seriously ill children. Our unique model combines innovative medical education and disease-management programs with community-based programs and services, creating a comprehensive menu of both "high-tech" and "high touch" programs. We offer hospital-based programs and services, web-based programs that can be viewed wherever computer access permits, and outpatient community-based programs for children and their families. All programs are provided free of charge. Starlight Starbright serves children and teens with chronic, serious, or life-threatening illnesses and injuries, such as cancer, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, kidney disease, and burn injuries. Through dynamic partnerships with local, regional, and national organizations, schools, clinics, camps, faith-based organizations, and other community groups, our programs touch the lives of more than 2 million seriously ill children and their families each year.

Mission: Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation is a national non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of seriously ill children and their families through imaginative programs that educate, uplift their spirits, foster a sense of community, and help alleviate the pain and fear of prolonged illness
