20/01/12 – Seven year old Thomas Magson from Uckfield has had his dearest wish to meet the Chelsea football team granted by Starlight.
In December 2010, Thomas was diagnosed with a severe form of Crohn’s disease, which is a type of inflammatory bowel disease. As a result, Thomas has had to undergo intensive treatment, including a course of steroids, and requires daily medication.
Thomas is very active and he absolutely adores football. When he was referred to Starlight for a once-in-a-lifetime wish he asked to meet the players of his favourite team, Chelsea, at a home game. He told the charity, “It would be a dream come true – I have never done it before and I would love to do it.”
