Program Description:

A Starlight Site is a beautifully designed, inviting hospital environment created to support the healing of pediatric patients during their hospital stay. Since 1990, Starlight has been transforming designated areas of sterile hospital environments into colorful, entertaining oases that can be enjoyed by young patients and their families. These playrooms, teen lounges, and playgrounds offer a variety of diversions, including video games, computers, toys, crafts, music, and best of all, the company of other children. Starlight Sites help ease young patients’ stress by stimulating the senses, providing an antidote to loneliness and an escape from the isolation of a hospital room. Every unique Starlight Site offers respite from the tedious routine most pediatric patients face. For young patients confined to a hospital, the opportunity to have fun in a well-equipped, welcoming atmosphere assists in the healing process.

Program Short-Term Success:

More than 100 hospitals throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Israel, and the UK have Starlight Sites (R)

Program Success Examples:

"I’ve come to realize that hospitals have a strange effect on children. It’s as if a hospital room forces them to grow up in an instant and face very adult situations and fears. It’s hard, as a parent, to watch your little one’s only childhood be stolen away. The Starlight playroom has been the one place in the hospital where my daughters can get away from Brianna’s room and enjoy being kids for a while. Morgan doesn’t like to go to her sister’s room, with all of the tubes and machines. She’d much rather visit with Brianna in the Starlight room. And if Brianna is undergoing treatment, Morgan is able to stay in the playroom. I never have to worry about whether or not she is bored, and she is always making friends. It makes it so much easier for Jeff and me to not have to stress about how Morgan is doing while our attention is focused on Brianna’s care." - Starlight mom   " We are absolutely THRILLED with the playroom at Metro Health in Wyoming. I was able to spend some time with a 9-year old boy while he was playing in the room. When he first entered the room, he was very embarrassed about his eye injury, and responded quite timidly to our presence. After only 20 minutes of playing "Sorry" with his stepdad and listening to his favorite radio station, he was visibly more content, more interactive, and I even saw him smile a few times. It was great to experience first-hand the impact of this gift for Metro's young patients. We're so thankful to Starlight for making this possible!" - Child Life staff at Metro Health

Program Description:

Starlight Escapes serve qualified children who have been diagnosed with a chronic or life-threatening illness. Escapes are family outings for Starlight Kids ages 4-18 as well as their parents and siblings of all ages. Escapes are designed to create fun, positive memories during a challenging medical journey. Underwritten by generous sponsors, families in the program enjoy movies, concerts, sporting events, and other recreation away from healthcare facilities. These carefree, relaxing activities also allow children and parents the opportunity to connect with others on a similar journey. Starlight Escapes provide many unforgettable moments for our pediatric patients and their families.

"Attending Starlight Escapes has been the most wonderful thing for my family,” says a Starlight Mom. “They have allowed us to have quality time together like we used to have before our child’s illness. After you have been through so much, you really don't know what normal family time is anymore. Starlight is showing us how to do that again." “All of the turmoil began to take its toll on my daughters. They were powerless to do anything for their brother, and couldn’t help but become frustrated that their lives had changed so much,” recalls a mother from Los Angeles. “‘Mom, we don’t go anywhere anymore,’ they’d say. Then they’d feel guilty. Through Starlight, my husband and I were grateful to see our children having fun and being children again.” “Thanks to Starlight, we have attended more family outings with our 11-year-old son Kenneth than we ever imagined possible. We have made new friends and exchanged information on how to make our children’s lives easier and more comfortable,” says a mother from Minneapolis. Adds a young girl from Toronto, “I call it my special place because the other children that go to Starlight Escapes with me also suffer with some type of illness. They know what it is like to be sick or in pain. They understand that we all have good days and bad days. We have a chance to talk about our illnesses and treatments, and no one judges us. It lets us have fun instead of seeing all the medical problems and tests we all face. Starlight allows me to be me and reminds me that I am not alone.”

Program Description:

Starlight Fun Center mobile entertainment units are equipped with the latest gaming system that provides bedside entertainment and brings the healing power of play to pediatric patients. For children facing surgery, enduring long outpatient treatments or fighting loneliness after hospital visiting hours have ended, Starlight Fun Center units provide a comforting break and fun distraction.

Program Long-Term Success:

Starlight and its generous donors have placed more than 8,500 Fun Centers in hospitals throughout the globe. But the list of hospitals still waiting for units remains long. Our goal is for every pediatric patient to have access to the therapeutic benefits Fun Centers provide.

Program Success Examples:

"Our patients love the new Fun Centers,” says Georgetown University Hospital Child Life Specialist, Linda Mi-Young Kim. “The variety of pre-loaded games makes Fun Centers perfect for the little ones and the teens too! A few weeks ago, I had two teen patients, one fighting cancer and the other receiving treatment for a kidney condition, who were upset that they were on the pediatric floor with ‘all the babies.’ They bonded during a heated Fun Center competition, and became fast friends. So we moved them into a double room for the duration of their stay. That Fun Center helped them not only transform their apprehension into laughter, but also to connect with one another — two things that help in the healing process.”   “Fun Centers make a real difference for families too,” adds Linda. “When siblings come in, they climb right into bed with their brother or sister and play together — it really helps them feel at ease and find a little bit of normalcy during a difficult time. I even had one father who played while waiting in his son’s room for him to return from a five-hour surgery. He was so grateful to have something to do to keep his mind off his fears.”

Program Success Examples:

“It's so hard for other people to understand what you're feeling when you are very sick. But with my friends on Starbright World, I didn't have to explain,” says Alyssa, a former Starbright World member and current chat host. “It was such an amazing feeling to be able to escape through the Internet into this world where I could laugh, be myself and find support. The friends I made on Starbright World will be among my closest friends for the rest of my life.” A recent Starbright World exchange in the chat room echoed the same feelings: Member1: I just want to say that I love you all! You guys on here make me feel so much better when I am down! I am so happy and blessed to know all of you! Thanks for being a good friend to me and I hope all of you are feeling great! Member2: Life seems hard at times but with you guys I can get through anything.Member1: TotallyMember2: We are a community of very strong willed people. We are Sparta!Member1: LOL. Yes we are.Member2: No wait, we're SBWers! Throws arms in the air*!*Member3: haha. I love you guys!Member2: LOL. I love you guys too!     “I am grateful that there are kids on Starbright World who understand what I’m going through. Of course, friends and family are supportive, but with kids who are going through the same kinds of things as I am, there is a different level of understanding,” says Starbright World member Nakita. “A few weeks ago, I was feeling pretty awful because I had developed polycystic ovarian syndrome. Another Starbright World teen also had experienced POS, and we talked for a long time about how much it hurts. Of course, my pain didn’t go away, but it was really comforting to know that I wasn’t the only one on the planet going through what I was going through. “It also feels really good to be able to help another teen who is having a tough time,” she continues. “A lot of kids on Starbright World are missing friends in the real world. But whether we are in the hospital or stuck at home, we can log-on anytime and connect with our Starbright World friends -- friends who we can count on to be there for the long haul, through all the ups and downs.”

Program Description:

Feedback from Child Life Specialists and other healthcare experts indicates that having a Starlight Tablet allows them to deliver superior patient care. For this reason, Starlight Tablets are ranked as a top priority on Starlight Wish Lists among many of our partner facilities. The job of the Child Life Specialist is to help kids understand and prepare for their treatments. Since Starlight was the pioneer in creating digital animated, educational programming that guides pediatric patients and their families through difficult procedures and diagnoses, this is a natural evolution of programming. Today, Starlight is able to put tablet technology into the hands of hospitals and their patients around the world. Child Life Specialists and other health practitioners can take advantage of the myriad of new apps and programs that help them improve patient care at point of care. The tools and resources on a Starlight Tablet aid Child Life Specialists in easing patients’ fears and empowering kids to cope with their diagnosis. Starlight Tablets come loaded with Starlight’s educational programming and a direct link to Starbright World and a list of recommended applications.
