The Need

No matter why a child is in the hospital, it can be an extremely stressful and scary experience for both the child and their family.

That's why we created Starlight programs.

Happiness to me is taking some of the burden and stress off of parents that are dealing with the hardest thing in their lives - having a sick child or possibly losing a child.

- Wendy Pauker, Associate Director of Child Life

Starlight Gaming provides hospitalized kids a distraction from the stress and anxiety that often comes with being a child in a hospital. It allows them to connect with their family and friends and provides them with a sense of normalcy that is not always felt while hospitalized. And, the pediatric patients at Banner Children's are in need of a Starlight Gaming Station.
