Troy is 14 years old and has Burkitt’s lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system.
This caused a large tumour to grow around Troy’s throat, which had to be removed. Troy then had to undergo a long and painful course of treatment.
It had always been Troy’s dream to learn how to ski and so when he was well enough, Starlight flew him and his family to Sweden where his wish could finally come true.
“Our ski holiday in Sweden was just fantastic” said Mum, Tina, afterwards. “We felt like royalty and thoroughly enjoyed learning a new skill. Troy took to skiing like a pro and by the end of the week was even doing a few low jumps! Thank you for granting Troy’s wish in such a spectacular way.”
