Starlight Children's Foundation  is a non-profit dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with serious medical conditions. We provide entertainment, education and family activities that help families cope with the pain, fear and isolation of prolonged illness. Starlight Children’s Foundation was founded in 1982 (and incorporated in 1983) in Los Angeles by fourth generation filmmaker Peter Samuelson and his cousin, actress Emma Samms after they had worked together to bring a terminally ill young boy from London to Los Angeles to fulfill his lifelong dream – to go to Disneyland. Since its inception, Starlight has provided programming to improve the life and health of kids and families in hospitals and communities around the globe . In 1992, Peter invited filmmaker Steven Spielberg to join him and co-found Starbright (the technology arm of Starlight) in order to harness the power of technology and entertainment in service of the mission.

Starlight brings together experts from pediatric health care, technology and entertainment to create programs that help brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families. Unlike any other charity, Starlight offers a comprehensive menu of outpatient, hospital-based and Web offerings that enable us to provide ongoing support for children and families — from diagnosis through the entire course of medical treatment. Whether it’s helping to pass long hours in a hospital, learning more about a disease or just having the chance to make special memories together as a family, Starlight’s programs help children and families cope with the challenges they face daily.
