A Word from Corbin Bleu
My life has undergone monumental changes in the past few years. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that I have been fortunate, beyond what words can describe.
But there is nothing I am more thankful for than my health, and the health of my family and friends.
I am all too aware that there are millions of young people around the country who are not as fortunate. Whether sidelined by an injury, or fighting against a disease, any child who is in the hospital is dealing with issues that even adults have trouble coping with. They may be confused and frightened by what’s going on around them, and they are most certainly overwhelmed. Kids are out of their element, and looking for a way to reconnect to the lives they had, before they were sick.
To say that Starlight changes lives is an understatement. This organization has done so much to give children battling illnesses a touchstone to their previous lives, and gives them a security blanket to hold onto during their toughest times.
At the same time, the programs offered by Starlight are educational, and give kids relatable, easily-understood background on what’s going on with their bodies, and gives them hope. Each game, movie, and video gives them insight that is proven effective during their stressful times.
I’m proud to work with Starlight, and bring a spotlight to the amazing work that they do.
