Luke's Trip on a Big Cruise Ship

When we met Luke and his family we got an immediate feeling that they were a close knit family who loved each other tremendously. Luke bravely battled a rare form of childhood cancer and while his family’s world was turned upside down, they stayed strong and looked forward to a happier and healthier future for Luke.

Luke loves the show Mighty Ships and his wish to go on a “big cruise ship” was the perfect experience for him and Make-A-Wish sent the family on a Royal Caribbean Cruise.

When Luke’s wish granters walked into the family’s home for a visit after their wish trip, the entire family was giddy with excitement! Luke and his younger brothers were excited to show off all of their photos and videos, and share stories about their adventure in the Caribbean.

Luke’s favourite moments were: holding a monkey and a parrot in Roatán, enjoying the huge waterslides on the cruise ship and achieving his goal of climbing all the way up a rock climbing wall.

Luke and his family greatly appreciated the opportunity to go on this trip. The family describes it as “the trip of a lifetime” and Luke loved all of the special attention he and his family received on the trip.

Thank you to Gap Canada Inc. for supporting Luke's life-changing wish.

When a wish is granted, it does much more than bring joy to a child’s heart. For wish kids like Luke, who are faced with critical illnesses, a wish-come-true provides them with strength to battle through darkness and hope for healthier, happier days ahead.
