At just six-years-old, Starlight Kid Emerson has already experienced a total of five back surgeries. As part of her scoliosis treatment, she spends more time in the hospital than any kid should. But she doesn’t let her surgeries keep her down for long!
“Emerson’s favorite place at Shriner’s Hospital for Children – St. Louis is the recreational therapy room,” said Cassy, Emerson’s mom.
Hanging out and having fun can be hard when you’re in pain or wearing an uncomfortable hospital gown. That’s why colorful, comfortable Starlight Gowns encourage kids to socialize with staff and other patients through cute, recognizable designs.
Thanks to our friends at Disney, we delivered special Disney-themed Gowns to hospitals across the country, including Shriner’s Hospital in St. Louis.
Patients love dressing up as their favorite princess, hero, or star. The familiar characters and kid-friendly designs on Disney-themed Gowns remind children of comfortable pajamas from home.
Some days call for extra sparkle
Emerson received one of the Minnie Mouse-themed Starlight Gowns! With ties on the side instead of down the back, her Gown provides the exact security she needs.
“Her Minnie Mouse-themed Gown gave her the privacy and style she needed to feel comfortable doing crafts and playing with other patients. Other than bringing a smile to her face, it is also so soft and keeps her covered. We are very grateful for this adorable Gown!" said Cassy.
Starlight Gowns replace uncomfortable and embarrassing hospital gowns with high-quality, comfortable, and brightly colored ones. We are happy to partner with Disney to deliver exciting Gowns like Emerson’s to seriously ill kids across the country.
