For ten-year-old Sam, his Starlight wish was so much fun he said he will remember it “forever and ever and ever!!”

After months of battling adenoid cystic carcinoma (a rare form of cancer previously unheard of in children in the UK), Sam was well enough for a much-deserved holiday.

So, Starlight sent him and his family to Orlando for a trip-of-a-lifetime: they screamed their way through the theme park rides at Universal Studios; swam with dolphins at Discovery Cove and were treated to an exclusive tour of Kennedy Space Centre, which culminated in lunch with a real-life astronaut!!
