What is "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 second 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.”
