Every 30 seconds, a child is diagnosed with a serious illness or injury.
At this moment, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are thousands of immunocompromised children undergoing chemotherapy, transfusions, and treatments for serious illnesses. These children can’t have their family with them, visitors are limited to one person, and social interaction with other patients or in the ward playroom is now nonexistent. Hospital resources are being directed to COVID-19 patients, kids are sharing wards with adults, and doctors in hazmat suits invoke fear.
We must help these vulnerable young patients. These kids are facing isolation like never before, in an environment that is already stressful and scary.
May 5th is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity to take place on May 5, 2020, as a response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. On this day, Starlight invites you to create a wave of generosity for hospitalized kids and their families.
