Mission and Goals
For over 25 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.
How Your Contribution Helps
Continue to provide programs across Canada. Our programs have been proven to distract children from their pain, help them better understand and manage their illnesses, and connect families with others facing similar challenges so that no one feels alone. Unlike any other charity, Starlight offers a comprehensive menu of outpatient, hospital-based and web offerings that enable us to provide ongoing support for children and families — from diagnosis through the entire course of medical treatment.

You really don't get to feel the magic of Starlight until you see how they light up a child's life through fun activities. Anonymous Starlight Family
