Four‐year‐old Aarron Higgins from Baillieston near Glasgow recently had his dearest wish to go to Disneyland Paris granted by Starlight Children’s Foundation, the UK’s leading wish granting charity for children with serious and terminal illnesses.
Aarron is a very brave little boy, who has had many challenges to face in his young life. He has a condition called Alagille syndrome, which is a life‐threatening genetic disorder that affects the liver, heart, kidney, and other systems of the body. He has had to undergo 14 operations thus far and it is likely that he will require a liver transplant in the near future.
A friend of the family heard about Starlight and, knowing just how much he has been through, she decided to put Aarron forward for a wish. Starlight was delighted to be able to offer Aarron a wish and the charity asked him to choose what his dearest wish would be. Aarron’s mum asked him a number of times but each time the answer was the same: “to go to Donald Duck land!”
We are overjoyed at Peninsula Print that our on-going support to GoCharitable.com is able to improve the lives of ill children, like Aaron.
