Letter from Jacqueline
What are you looking forward to most in 2011? A family vacation? A special birthday or anniversary? Watching your child or grandchild experience his or her first steps or graduate from high school?
For most of us, the new year signals a fresh start and excitement about what the year ahead holds in store. Unfortunately, for families dealing day-in, and day-out with the realities that life-threatening childhood illness brings, one year blurs into the next as it becomes harder and harder to find the optimism to celebrate the gift of another day or the strength to believe in the future.
But with your help, Starlight will be able to ensure that their new year is filled with new hope. Whether you decide to buy a product
knowing that a percentage of the purchase price benefits Starlight, sponsor a Fun Center for the young patients at a hospital on Starlight’s wait list, volunteer your time at a Great Escape event or introduce new families to Starlight’s services and support – your compassion and generosity serve as a spark that helps brighten their worlds, a little each day.
As Starlight’s new CEO, I am inspired day after day by the indomitable spirits of Starlight families and the commitment of supporters like you to make a difference in their lives. Thank you for all that you do.
Warmest wishes for a wonderful new year,
