Andrew’s Greek Odyssey

Seven-year-old Andrew was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in October 2012 at the age of three. Since then, he’s undergone 18 cycles of chemotherapy, 23 general anaesthetics and several operations.

It was Andrew’s greatest wish to fly in a plane and swim in a warm sea so Starlight sent Andrew and his family to the gorgeous Greek island, Rhodes.

Andrew and his family spent a sunny week enjoying the pool and waterslides, swimming in the sea and sampling the delicious Greek cuisine!

Andrew’s mum, Melody said, “We’re so grateful to Starlight for granting Andrew’s wish. For us, Andrew’s wish symbolised the beginning of a new chapter, and it gave us a glimpse into what life can be like for our family going forward. We have so many memories we’ll treasure forever and for that, we cannot thank Starlight enough.”
