Christopher is a smart 15-year-old boy with a great sense of humor. Christopher likes to watch television, play video games like Call of Duty and listen to hip hop music. He also enjoys spending time outdoors and going fishing. Christopher’s world was turned upside down when he was diagnosed with having a Germinoma brain tumor. Though his physical activity is often limited because of his treatment, his family is optimistic that he will recover.
Christopher’s one true wish was to go to the Bahamas and thanks to your incredible support, he recently returned from this once-in-a-lifetime experience! Christopher and his family were treated like royalty throughout his wish, beginning with a luxurious limousine ride to the airport. They stayed at the Atlantis Paradise Island Hotel in Nassau, Bahamas which is a beautiful resort designed around the theme of the mythical Lost Continent of Atlantis. This family-friendly destination includes vast water-park and marine-life attractions.
Christopher told us that he wanted to go to the Bahamas because it is warm with great beaches and it is outside of the United States. He loves going on family trips and wanted to be able to enjoy quality time with his parents and his older sister.
Christopher’s vacation was the perfect combination of relaxing beaches,
water-park adventures and one-of-a-kind tourist opportunities. Although the resort is well known for its “water coasters” it also offers a sports center, rock climbing opportunities and snorkeling. Christopher swam with dolphins and enjoyed jet skiing and wind surfing. The Atlantis Resort offers everything he wished for! The Marine Village has wonderful dining options as well as some terrific shopping alongside the Atlantis Marina. Atlantis is also home to the world’s largest open-air marine habitat.
Christopher’s volunteer Wish Granters planned an incredible party with Christopher’s friends and family to celebrate his wish is coming true! The whole family had a wonderful time and afterward told us, “we can’t wait to get to the beach! We love Make-A-Wish Wisconsin & your supporters!” Christopher’s wish was a truly magical experience that allowed his family to form wonderful and lasting memories, thanks to the incredible power of a wish. Christopher’s mother said she couldn’t thank Make-A-Wish and our supporters enough for making his wish come true. Thank you for your incredible support.
