Francesco’s new dolphin friend

Francesco at Discovery Cove

Six year old Francesco, from Whitstable, has been undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Francesco wished to swim with dolphins and see a real whale so Starlight sent him and his family on a fabulous adventure to Florida to visit Sea World and experience the magic of a dolphin experience at Discovery Cove.

Francesco and his parents had a fantastic time and his mum sent us a lovely email after their trip:

“Just want to say thank you for a really magical time – me and Francesco were in tears when we left! We all have a lovely sun tan and coming back to the cold is not easy… I have to say Discovery Cove is really something special. The swim with the dolphins is amazing and the whole place really is like paradise on earth. Never been so relaxed, so spoiled – the food is great, everything is included, all done very tastefully and efficiently. Francesco loved it, and so did we. I really have no more words to thank you all.”
