A dream comes true for Shannon

Shannon meeting a dolphin

Kissing a dolphinEight-year-old Shannon has a rare form of heart disease and has had to spend much of her short life in hospital. Her Starlight wish was to swim with her favourite animal: the dolphin.

So, Starlight sent Shannon to Discovery Cove in Floria, along with her Mum, sister Candie-Marie and brother Michael for a holiday that all the family would remember.

“I can’t thank you enough for making Shannon’s wish come true” said Mum, Helen. “Seeing her face light up when the dolphin swam towards her was the best feeling in the world. I will remember it forever.
