When Starlight asked Georgina, who has a genetic illness called Niemann-Pick disease, what her wish was, there was no hesitation. She wanted to take a trip to Lapland to meet Santa!
Georgina and her family, along with thirteen other Starlight families, flew up to the Arctic Circle to experience the constant twilight during their Christmassy adventure. There were husky rides; snow mobile excursions through the forest; trips to a strange and chilly ice hotel; and hours of playing in the snow. On the second day, Georgina and her family travelled in fur-lined sleighs pulled by reindeer through the forest to a clearing where there were toboggans and an open fire. That’s when an elf took them to meet the man himself, Santa!
