Seventeen-year-old Ed was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma at the age of fourteen, a rare disease in which cancer cells are found in the bone or in soft tissue.
Ed underwent intensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy to battle the cancer and had to have two ribs taken out so that the 20cm tumour, could be removed.
It was Ed’s greatest wish to visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London. Ed’s mum, Nikki said,
I’ll never forget the day that Ed’s Wishgranter, Amy called. She told us that Ed wouldn’t be visiting the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London…he’d be visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando!
Before you can say “Hogwarts” Ed and his family were on their way to Orlando!
When the time came to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Ed could hardly contain his excitement. Nikki said,
Ed was full of beans and the happiest I’ve seen him in a long time. There were so many jaw-dropping moments, he simply couldn’t believe his eyes
Ed was so enchanted, they revisited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at least six times during their stay in between enjoying an array of other attractions!
