When Lindsay was two, she was constantly coughing. After many trips back and forth from the doctor’s, she was finally sent to a specialist and diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. This is a condition in which mucus clogs the lungs, often leading to life-threatening lung infections. Lindsay has been hospitalized twice for her condition and must endure twice daily percussion vest treatments and daily medications.
For her wish, Lindsay wanted to visit LEGOland and Winter the dolphin in Florida!
Kids Wish Network arranged an all expenses paid vacation for Lindsay and her family that included a stay at the gorgeous Marriott Sand Key Hotel, a rental car, a tropical boat tour, a trip on Captain Memo’s Pirate Ship, dinners every evening and, of course, tickets to LEGOland and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. They also sent representatives to meet Lindsay and her family at the airport and greet them upon their arrival.
“It was so much fun,” said Teresa, Lindsay’s mother. “Lindsay had a blast.”
Some of Lindsay’s favorite experiences were seeing Winter the dolphin, collecting shells on the beaches of Clearwater, and riding on roller coasters at LEGOland. According to Lindsay, she almost got sick on her very first rollercoaster, but she was a big girl and didn’t get sick after all.
“It was just incredible. It was definitely an experience that we’d never have done without the help of Kids Wish Network. Thank you for everything and for making my little girl smile again.”
