Dr. Nick has signed up to participate in Starlight Tour De Kids, a bike ride that is being completed throughout September. Making use of our active platforms: SelectSmiles, novaMED and Quadrant, we are shining our spotlight on the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Here is an example of the difference that they make with a quote from their page:
Chase was a happy, confident 4yo, whose life became filled with pain, and fear of hospital machines.
Diagnosed with childhood kidney cancer, he endured major surgery, rounds of chemo and blood transfusions. Luckily Captain Starlight could cheer him up.
Now in remission, he still fears hospital visits for check-ups. The one thing that helps him push through is a visit with Captain Starlight.
Our little contribution towards brightening these children’s days (not forgetting their parents) is by:
- (a) raising awareness via our staff and our broad multi-media marketing circulation and also
- (b) providing you with an easy link (below) to make your contribution
This September, Dr. Nick has committed to completing 1000km on his exercise bike (due to restrictions) to raise at least $1,000 for this worthwhile cause; with your added support, we hope that this foundation will benefit from a lot more. Please join us in bringing a little boost to the parents’ days / weeks / months by seeing their children happy, knowing that complete strangers out there, are thinking of them and wish to brighten their day.
Here’s a little more information on the Starlight Foundation:
Mission: At Starlight we know that happiness matters to sick kids facing the pain, fear and stress of serious illness. That’s why for over 30 years we have worked in partnership with health professionals to bring the fun, joy and laughter that help sick kids be kids. We help kids of all ages regardless of disability, injury or illness because what happens in childhood lasts a lifetime. We believe in happiness because it matters to sick kids’ health.
- Happiness helps sick kids feel more positive, confident and resilient
- Happiness helps sick kids cope with the pain of illness and treatment
- Happiness helps reduce fear, stress and anxiety
