Starlight's mission is "To brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families".
When a once-bright life becomes dulled by needles, hospital visits and painful treatments, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness and re-discover the joy of childhood.
They know there's more to treatment than medicine. That's why since 1988, they partnered with Australian health professionals to develop programs based on positive psychology principles that support the 'total care' of our children and teens.
Like the young people in their care, they are distinctly Australian. Their unique programs are the result of extensive research and respond to the specific needs of Aussie kids and teens.
They know what kids and their families are facing when serious illness or injury consumes their lives.
They disrupt the relentless cycle of pain and trauma and offer a welcome break so that sick kids can simply be kids.
They believe fun fights fear and wins every time.
