Shine Time Foundation

Shine Time Foundation We create and customize themed celebrations for children facing medical or emotional challenges, so they have a chance to shine like the stars they are!
(1)

The Shine Time Foundation creates customized "Dreams Come True Days" for children battling cancer or other medical challenges as well as children dealing with emotional trauma from life altering events such as the loss of a parent or homelessness. Volunteers come together to build sets, props and costumes and transform themselves into characters that perform for and interact with our Shine Time Kids. Our mission is to immerse each child in a magical world for the day, where they get to be the star of their own show and become whatever they've dreamed of. We cater to the specific interests and passions of each child and customize an experience that gives them proof that DREAMS REALLY DO COME TRUE!

03/17/2020

At this moment in time, it would mean EVERYTHING to me and Maddox if you would order a copy of our children's book, "The Magic Maker." Here's why....

1) Yesterday at his long, hard appointment to check for new cancer growth, Maddox asked me, "Why do I have to go through this?" Any time he asks me questions like this, I tell him that God has a plan for his life, and his story is meant to inspire the world. That's why he and I wrote this book. We wanted to find PURPOSE in our pain. When Maddox hears someone say that they read the book and it made a difference in their life, he gets SO happy and excited. Sharing this book with you and your family is what helps my baby understand the meaning behind everything he has endured.

2) With all of this down time from the quarantine, it is the PERFECT time to read with your child. This book is full of SO many beautiful life lessons that you and your child will appreciate. Plus, it's a really fun and uplifting story to get your minds off virus related news!

3) Easter Season is approaching! You can give this as an Easter Gift, or use it as a tool to help your children grow in their relationship with God. This book was inspired by my son's real life miracle story, so you can reassure your little ones that miracles STILL happen today! In a light-hearted and entertaining way, this book teaches about the things that truly matter in life....Faith, Joy and Love!

We had a great time hosting a Shine Time Party for Brandon this weekend. Brandon had Stage 4 Wilms tumor. The tumor was larger than 2 softballs combined. He has had chemo treatments, radiation treatment and surgery procedures. His last scans have shown no sign of cancer. We wanted to celebrate by hosting a party for Brandon's family and friends.

We hosted a Shine Time Foundation Birthday Party today for Peytan. Peytan suffers from Cystinosis, which is a rare, incurable metabolic disease that afflicts 500 children and young adults in the United States and only 2000 worldwide. The amino acid cystine accumulates and crystallizes in cells due to abnormal transport of the cystine. This build up eventually destroys all the body’s organs including the kidneys, liver, muscles, white blood cells, eyes and central nervous system. We are so glad we were able to make Peytan's 8th Birthday extra special.

10/12/2017

We are currently planning two Shine Time Foundation parties for children in the Hampton Roads area. One party is for a young boy battling cancer. The other party is for a little girl with Cystinosis. The parties will take place at Higher Vision Studios in November. If anyone knows of local businesses or individuals that might want to donate (food, gift certificates, etc) or sponsor these parties, please contact us. We want to make these parties as amazing as possible for these two incredible fighters! Thank you!

03/21/2017

In addition to parties, we also offer scholarships for Martial Arts and Performing Arts classes through Shine Time Foundation. This year we have given 5 students the opportunity to take ongoing classes at Higher Vision Studios. These children come from families dealing with traumatic life circumstances that would otherwise prevent them from being able to participate in or afford extracurricular activities (death of a parent, foster care, health crisis of a sibling, etc). It makes us SO happy to give these kids a chance to follow their passions and dreams!

We hosted a Shine Time Foundation party for this deserving family yesterday. Renée Hill lost her husband, Derek, in December 2016 after a long fight with Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (a rare and fatal brain disease). Derek served in the Navy for 20 years prior to being diagnosed and put in hospice at only 38 years old. Renee cared for her husband and two small children for three years as Derek lost his memory, mobility and ability to care for himself. After going through so much heartbreak, we wanted to give this family a day to focus only on FUN. We gave them a party with a Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course, Huge Bounce House and Glow in the Dark Nerf War / Indoor Snowball Fight, with a touch of SUPERMAN added in to the theme since that was Derek's favorite superhero. We also sent them off with some special gifts to enjoy together as a family. We hope that they will always remember the fun moments shared with their friends on this special day... and that the memory of it will continue to bring a smile to their faces.
