Alex and family in front of a vintage taxiAlex, aged 15, has osteosarcoma – a cancerous bone tumour. The disease has caused Alex a lot of pain and has meant that he has had to spend much time in hospital.

As a result, he has missed out on a great deal of school and has been seperated from his friends for long periods.

When Starlight asked Alex what his greatest wish was, he told us: “to go on a holiday to a different culture with my family”. So, Starlight sent Alex off to Cuba for two weeks with his parents and twin brothers, Edward and Quinn.

In Alex’s words, this was “the holiday of a lifetime”!!
