Cole Cruises to His Happy Place, Bahamas

Cole dreamed about escaping the cold and traveling to somewhere tropical. Kids Wish Network gave him a postcard perfect wish, sending him on a luxurious cruise, destination Bahamas.

Cole struggles with Crohn’s Disease, a chronic inflammatory disease of the digestive tract. His health was recently deteriorating and he was almost sepsis before undergoing major surgery for the removal of part of his intestines, colon, appendix and abscesses. His wish trip would enable him to get away and focus on happy times, experience new destinations and relax.

Kids Wish Network purchased a cruise for Cole and his mom. They set sail out of Cape Liberty, New Jersey to experience a week-long adventure visiting Orlando (Port Canaveral, Florida), Coco Cay, Bahamas and Nassau, Bahamas. They spent lots of time lounging on Bahama’s beaches and swimming in the crystal blue waters. It was a special time shared by Cole and his mom that they’d always remember.
