Alec's Wish – Granted on 17 Jun 2018
“I wish to watch a World Cup game live with my best friend”
Alec is a sporty and outgoing young man with a great passion for football. It is no wonder that his wish was to watch a live World Cup match in Russia! Alec is recovering well from a recent liver transplant which was necessary given his medical diagnosis of Biliary Atresia, a childhood liver disease. He travelled to Russia earlier this June to watch Germany play against Mexico live at the Kaliningrad stadium along with his best friend EJ, who inspired his love for the game, and his beautiful family.
Before the trip, we took Alec and EJ on a shopping spree for new Germany soccer team jerseys as the boys were huge fans of the team. Alec and his family stayed on in Moscow for a short five-day holiday after watching the soccer match to celebrate the momentous trip and Alec’s improving state of health. The historical sights and architectural landmarks in Moscow were beautiful sights to behold, and unforgettable memories were made.
We hope you had the trip of a lifetime with you family and EJ, and wish you all the best as you return to school, the best of health and many more exciting travels to come!
