Abstract

Starlight Children's Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children around the globe with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries by providing entertainment, education and family activities that help them cope with the pain, fear and isolation of prolonged illness. Starlight offers a comprehensive menu of outpatient, hospital-based and Web offerings to provide ongoing support for children and families - from diagnosis through the entire course of medical treatment. 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.
