Thirteen-year-old Christy, who was diagnosed with a cardiac condition at age 12 and is currently listed for a heart transplant, was treated like a queen at Mount Sinai Hospital, 1184 Fifth Avenue and 99th Street in Manhattan, thanks to the nonprofit Project Sunshine’s “Star for a Day” program on April 2.

Miss Teen USA Danielle Doty was among the volunteers who helped brighten Christy’s day as she received treatment at Mount Sinai.

Project Sunshine’s “Star for a Day” program brings volunteers into hospitals to help children feel like a king or queen. Children decorate crowns and tiaras, wands and scepters, and create their own storybook fairytales. The special attention from volunteers truly helps the child feel like a star!

Project Sunshine is celebrating its volunteers throughout April, Project Sunshine Month. The month is dedicated to raising awareness and support for the organization through a series of events and programs.

Project Sunshine is a nonprofit organization that empowers a dynamic and dedicated corps of more than10,000 volunteers to bring programming – recreational (arts), educational (tutoring and mentoring) and social service (HIV and nutritional counseling) – to more than 60,000 children facing medical challenges and their families in 150 major cities across the United States, and in five international satellite sites: Canada, China, Israel, Kenya, and Puerto Rico. Project Sunshine is dedicated to bringing a ray of hope to these hospitalized children.

Project Sunshine Week is a week dedicated to raising awareness and support for the organization through a series of events and programs. For more information, please visit www.projectsunshine.org.
