The story of his community’s endeavor to fulfill his request, right down to the firemen entering his hospital room window via a hook and ladder truck, inspired her to offer hope and joy to local children with life-threatening illnesses by turning their dreams into realities. Coincidentally, at about the same time, fellow Birmingham mother Buffie Marks, who volunteered in play therapy at Children’s, had a similar idea after having seen a national broadcast about a wish granting organization. Not only does Magic Moments provide children with non-medical opportunities such as a family trip to Disney World, meeting a celebrity of choice, or going on a shopping spree, we provide on-going events to enhance the relationships between our staff and families as well as relationships with other families.
Magic Moments was founded in 1984 with the sole purpose of providing happiness to children throughout the state of Alabama who are diagnosed with chronic life-threatening illnesses. Soon, with the blessings of hospital administration and a 0 grant from the Junior League of Birmingham, Magic Moments was born.
As Birmingham mother Shelley Clark was spending time in and out of Children’s Hospital (now Children’s of Alabama), she saw a television program about a chronically ill boy who wanted to ride on a fire truck. To date Magic Moments has provided over 4,600 magic moments for children in all 67 counties of Alabama.
In 2013 the Family Camp concept was expanded further and we began providing year-round, ongoing support for our families.
These opportunities, known as “Beyond the Moments,” include activities such as family nights at regional ballpark, Valentine’s Day ice skating parties, and breakfast with Santa.
Beyond the Moment opportunities are offered to families at no expense.
Magic Moments employees five full-time and one part-time staff members.
