Matthew’s Wish to go on Holiday
“I wish to go…on a sun holiday with my family”
Matthew is nine and wanted to go on a sun holiday with his family, and in his words – ‘to chillax’. He wanted to do what a normal boy does on holidays, eat ice-cream, play in the water, eat food that his mum wouldn’t normally let him eat and try new things.
We have six children this year to date that have wished for a similar sun holiday wish. Some of our families haven’t had a holiday since the wish child became sick, so it’s wonderful to be able to offer the whole family a break from treatment, hospitals, the illness itself and the stress that illness brings to a family.
