Shane's Wish – Granted on 11 Jul 2017
“I wish for a day out”
Shane is an active and imaginative 4 year-old boy who loves cars, role-playing, splashing in the pool, eating too much candy and singing - all the things most boys his age enjoy. But Shane suffers from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, a cancer of the white blood cells that makes him easily susceptible to germs. This condition keeps Shane from going outdoors often, and so his wish was for a fun day out!
We were determined to make Shane’s wish absolutely unforgettable! Taking into consideration his condition, we enlisted the help of Kidzania, a child-friendly interactive theme park where kids can dress up, drive small vehicles and role-play different occupations. They kindly offered Shane and his friends some time in the park before regular opening hours to try out all the activities like pizza-making and fire fighting! The day ended with a luxurious staycation at Sentosa for Shane and his family.
Little did he know that upon check out, a fleet of Ferrari cars were waiting for him. Some kind Ferrari Club members showed up with Ferrari merchandise for Shane and offered him and his family a ride home in any of the cars present.
What a treat!
Creating priceless, precious memories for children like Shane is what keeps us motivated to continue helping other deserving little heroes!
