Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams

Help us light the night at Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams

“Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams,” is a program created by the Beaumont Children’s Pediatric Family Advisory Council at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak. We're excited to be bringing this program back for the third year!

At 8 p.m. every evening in December, pediatric patients will shine flashlights from the hospital windows and look for community members standing outside the hospital to flash them back. “Many children are unable to leave their rooms and can feel isolated in the hospital as the rest of the world continues without them,” Beaumont Children’s Child Life Supervisor Kathleen Grobbel said. “With the help of the community, we can make sure they go to bed with smiles on their faces.”

Beyond the physical challenges that illness brings to these children, these patients also face emotional stress during hospitalization. They miss their friends, school and being at home during the holidays. Often times they are scared and unable to leave their rooms. Moonbeams is an event to let all patients in the hospital know they are not alone and that they can rest easy knowing that an entire community is behind them in supporting their journey to be happy and healthy.
