"During the really hard days, all I could think about was the fun my family would have at Atlantis and the Caribbean beaches"- Sunny

On July 10, 2014, I was diagnosed with cancer.  The diagnosis was the beginning of my journey which led me to four months of treatment.  My treatment included 35 chemo treatments, 12 spinal taps with chemo, and two bone marrow tests (negative).  As you can imagine, the treatments were no fun.  The good thing is I got to meet other Wish Kids and make new friends.

During my treatment, I met Ms. Annette from Make-A-Wish.  She said I was eligible for a wish.  This brought a big smile to my face.  I thought of all of the cool places I could go, celebrities I could meet, and things I could have, but the Bahamas was in my heart.  During the months of treatment, my family was stretched thin between hospital stays, work and trying to keep up with my brother's activities.  It has been a difficult time for all of us.  During the really hard days, all I could think about was the fun my family would have at Atlantis and the Caribbean beaches.  Before Ms. Annette, this was only a dream and definitely not a possibility.  My wish helped me when I needed it most.  I would love to see every eligible child have their wish granted and receive an equally awesome experience.
