The Starlight Children’s Foundation provides us with amazing events in their Great Escapes program. They are a non-profit that helps children with chronic illness. This organization has been a huge benefit for my daughter where she is able to get some special attention and have opportunities that may not otherwise be available to us. At these events we connect with other families that are struggling with special health needs and she is able to connect with other kids that understand what it’s like to be sick more than the usual cold.
The past event was our favorite by far. It was a Mother and Daughter event sponsored by Forever 21 and they went all out for us! We were given make overs… they did our hair, makeup and nails. We were given a shopping spree and had a consultation with a personal stylist (I really freaking need it). We also had personal shoppers with us and that made my daughter feel extra special.
When you have a child who’s life is faced with obstacles and hurdles because of their health issues it’s wonderful to have events like these.
