Animal-mad Tyler meets a killer whale

Tyler and the Wale trainers

Tyler and the Wale trainers14-year-old Tyler has a brain tumour. Following surgery, he has suffered with visual, mobility and sickness issues, which means that many of his old hobbies are no longer an option for him.

Instead, he has started spending time around animals to relax and his dearest wish was to see ‘a real-life whale’. So, Starlight sent Tyler and his family to Loro Parque in Tenerife to see the killer whales and meet the men who train them.

“Tyler had an absolutely wonderful trip” said Mum, Jan. “He has come back full of his time with the whales and I cannot thank you enough for giving us all this time to relax.”
