Dustin Wolfswinkel Foundation
Thunderbirds Charities donated $50,000 to Starlight Arizona to begin renovating hospital treatment room at the AZ Burn Center at Maricopa Medical Center. Many seriously ill children undergo procedures in hospital treatment rooms. It is in these rooms where some of the child’s most difficult and painful experiences occur. Medical staff, parents and the children themselves asked Starlight to improve these environments to help calm worries, reduce fears, and provide a distraction from pain. Thanks to the generous support from Thunderbirds Charities, Starlight will transform the room to be more comforting to help make the child’s experience less frightening and at the same time increase his or her cooperation during the treatment process.
Phoenix Suns Charities
