Greetings, Starlight Friends and Supporters!

Starlight was fortunate to celebrate a summer full of wonderful Great Escapes with our families. We organized dozens of activities and events, including Duck Tours throughout Boston, cruises on Lake Winnipesaukee, Red Sox and New England Revolution games and much more!

In looking back at our wonderful summer, we thought we would share a nice letter from a Starlight parent…

My son Caleb and I want to thank you SO much for the opportunity you gave us to see the New England Revolution play at Gillette Stadium! The night was an exciting one for Caleb and the opportunity came at the perfect time! Caleb spent the past 12 months having weekly chemotherapy to treat cancer. He recently began a break in treatment and is feeling much of his energy return. NEW_StarlightFamiliesShare_ASpecialThankYouFromAStarlightMom_CalebsStory 

This spring, he decided to play soccer instead of baseball (much to his father's dismay!). He just completed several weeks of indoor soccer and is excited to sign up for the outdoor league in our town as well! Only a couple days before we found out about the opportunity to see the New England Revolution play, Caleb asked if there was a professional team for soccer. When we told him about the team, he asked if we could possibly go to a game some day. So, you can imagine his excitement when he found out where we were going this past weekend! He didn't take his eyes off the field for the whole game--something has to be pretty exciting to keep this 7-year old focused for so long! He studied the program to learn about the players and asked a ton of questions about the game. He loved the whole experience!

Caleb missed so many opportunities to "just be a kid" this past year. Thank you so much for giving him a wonderful opportunity to just be a kid and learn about a new sport! The New England Revolution definitely has a new, devoted fan!

Thank You!-A Starlight Mom
