Will you help seriously ill kids like Ruby with a generous tax deductible gift of $39 today?
To manage her Cystic Fibrosis, sadly, hospital is an ongoing part of Ruby’s life.
There is no cure for CF and Ruby’s time in hospital increases every year.
That gift of happiness that Starlight brings makes a powerful difference helping Ruby cope with her illness. That’s why having Starlight in hospital is so important.
“When a child is in a happy mood, they are in a better frame of mind to face a chronic illness,” her mum says.
Ruby loves animals, dancing and cheerleading, but hospital takes her away from the things she loves. As her mum says, “There are no days off from CF.”
“Starlight breaks up the monotony of hospital life by bringing fun, laughter and creativity into days that would otherwise be rough for sick kids,” Danielle said.
Starlight helps give Ruby the resilience and bravery to return to hospital. We can only continue to be there for Ruby with your support.
Your support enables Starlight to continue to be in every children’s hospital in Australia.
Every $1 invested in Starlight Express Rooms creates $5.70 worth of value.
That means your donation has far-reaching benefits.
When a child has fun with Captain Starlight in the Starlight Express Room, they’re happier and less anxious which improves their overall health; they’re more responsive to treatment and that helps doctors to see more patients too.
Over the last two years, Starlight Express Room visits have risen by 45,470 – highlighting the increased need for funding to keep Starlight in every children’s hospital in Australia seven days a week.
We rely on the generosity of our donors to continue to provide our programs to seriously ill children like Ruby.
