  • Jack wished to go to Atlantis in the Bahamas!

“ Jack wanted to play with the dolphins! ”

Jack is an adventurous boy who loves playing in the water, swimming, waterslides and anything fun! Living with the diagnosis of a brain tumor is not easy for Jack or his family, so when he was asked about his most heartfelt wish he was thrilled. Jack chose to go on a family vacation to Atlantis, in the Bahamas!

Jack and his family kicked off his wish with a limousine ride to the airport. When they arrived at Atlantis, Jack and his little sister were ecstatic about the stingray pool below their hotel room balcony. At Dinner Jack had a ton of his favorite, shrimp! He said, “The food was unbelievable. You could pick whatever you wanted, including 1,000 desserts!” Jack’s love for waterslides was taken to a new level at Atlantis. He could not get enough of the slides, water jets, wave pools and his new found favorite, the lazy river. A special memory for Jack was his play time with the sea lions! He said, “A special treat for me was a day ‘behind the scenes’ training a sea lion, Feebie.” Jack and his family got to pet, play with, feed and do silly tricks with Feebie.

Jack’s wish trip to Atlantis will always be special to him. He said, “I want to say thank you so much to everyone who made this possible. It was definitely a dream come true. From the minute we unpacked our bags in the room we quickly ran to the pool and had fun the entire time.”
