Ten-year-old cancer patient wishes to swim with a dolphin in the Bahamas
Standing waist-deep in the crystal clear salt water, Anna reaches out and places her hands on the smooth, soft skin of her favorite animal. She is amazed by the calm and friendly creature swimming gracefully beside her.
After months of grueling treatment for a form of leukemia, Anna's incredible wish is finally coming true. She is about to swim with dolphins at the breathtaking Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas!
Anna has always loved swimming and dolphins, and her wish experience is bringing two of her favorite things together. Before she made her wish, Anna carefully considered what would make her happiest. She dreamed of an activity that had always made her smile before she got sick: swimming and splashing in the bright blue sea.
Anna’s wish lets her be a happy, carefree child again. As she touches the majestic dolphin before her, he pokes his head and tail out of the water, ready for a photo with Anna! The dolphin comes right up to Anna for a gentle kiss.
On her Atlantis wish trip, Anna meets her favorite animals and explores the resort’s wonder world of slides, pools, and waterfalls. A wish fulfilled brings hope, strength, and joy to an entire family, and Anna’s experience with the dolphins has done just that for her family. She will always treasure this magical experience in the sunny Caribbean.
