Jason Monero, aged 15, from Forest Gate in London, has had his wish to go to St Lucia granted by Starlight Children’s Foundation, the UK’s leading wish granting charity for children with serious and terminal illnesses.
Jason and his family visited St Lucia when he was two years old and as he has grown up he has always longed to return. When Jason was referred to Starlight, he said that it would be his dream to revisit the tropical island paradise and to see his relatives who live there.

Starlight grants a once-in-a-lifetime wish for seriously and terminally ill children, restoring the magic and fun of childhood and giving the whole family happy memories to share, whatever the future holds.
Starlight also creates entertainment in every hospital and hospice throughout the UK. Sick children go to Starlight parties, laugh their way through pantomimes, go out on Starlight Escapes, play games and watch films on the Starlight Fun Centre, and enjoy the toys and puzzles of the Starlight Distraction Box. Happy children respond better to treatment and Starlight helps children to forget about their illness and simply have a bit of fun.
