At Starlight, we know happy kids heal faster! That’s why each of our programs is specially made with seriously ill kids in mind.
Everyone’s hospital journey is unique, from one-time injuries to long-term stays, and seeing a doctor is no fun when you’re not feeling well.
Regardless of the severity of the illness or injury, every kid deserves a fun childhood. Our variety of Starlight programs works to deliver happiness at any stage of the hospital journey.
Going to the hospital for a broken bone or stitches for a cut can be scary, but Starlight programs help comfort patients and normalize their short stay.
For kids feeling bored in their rooms, Starlight Spaces allows pediatric patients and their families to safely escape the hospital setting and relax together. The Teen Space at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital provides teenagers with just the cool hideaway they need.
Long-Term Treatments and Chronic Illnesses
Patients experiencing chronic illnesses may visit the hospital for regular treatments or longer stays. Starlight programs give kids something to look forward to, helping with pain management, socialization, and so much more!
Heart Warrior Finn has a congenital heart defect (CHD) and loves our comfortable, high-quality Starlight Gowns. Like other kids with CHDs, Finn’s heart is working twice as hard, meaning he overheats easily. The breathable Gowns help him stay cool!
