Starlight Children’s Foundation® Canada has been brightening the lives of seriously ill children and their families by bringing them joy, laughter and relief, for close to 30 years. We focus on the family as a whole, at a time when they feel most isolated, offering programs and events that can provide an escape from the stress of dealing with a serious illness every day.

What makes Starlight unique is that we are there for the entire journey — from hospital to home

While in-hospital, Starlight provides distraction, entertainment and relief from the stress and boredom of hospitalization. When out-of-hospital, Starlight children benefit from our Day Brightener, Great EscapesTM and Wishes programs — giving them an opportunity to leave the ‘sick’ behind, create special family memories and return home with a renewed sense of strength and hope.
