The Starlight Foundation Seattle Chapter hosted an Awards lunch and Fundraiser at the Westin today. I have to say, it was very encouraging to hear of all the wonderful ways that the Starlight Foundation helps not only children who have severe medical issues, but truly the entire family and non-sick siblings. Parents shared how much that means to their families as they deal with the medical issues of their children.
Kathi Goertzen was on hand to receive an award for her dedication and advocacy of children’s health issues. Some of the Starlight children collected donations and took a little mic time of there own on stage. It was great to hear from there about their own experiences and grateful for all Starlight has done for them and their families.
