*Starlight® Wishes

Body: 

Children are remarkable in their capacity to live in the moment. Imagine how important special moments and happy memories are to a child battling a serious illness. When treatment is stressful, tiring, and painful, looking forward to a Starlight wish boosts morale and fosters optimism. The simple act of selecting a wish can empower a child or teen when so much of their world is controlled by other circumstances.

Starlight Wishes provide a dream-come-true experience to seriously ill or injured children ages 4 to 18. The Starlight Wish process is an enchanting, multi-step adventure, involving doctors, children and their families, and wish-granting volunteers. During this once-in-a-lifetime occasion, the rigors of long-term treatment, medical personnel, and social workers are supplanted by a child's imagination and a little stardust!
