Lucy meets her favourite animal

Lucy kissing the dolphin

Lucy kissing the dolphin12-year-old Lucy was diagnosed with neuroblastoma last year. After four months of unsuccessful chemotherapy, Lucy had to undergo major surgery and spend a lot of time in hospital.

An avid wildlife fan, Lucy’s Starlight wish was to swim with dolphins: “I think they are beautiful animals” she told us, “they always seem to be smiling and happy.”

So, Starlight sent Lucy and her family to Floria, where her wish came true. “To see her face light up was a wish come true in itself for me and her mum” said Dad, Kevin.  “It will help us to remain positive about the future.”
