Jacob Green, 13, from Winchester, joins STARboard with hopes to use his own experience to improve the wishgranting process and help other children see their wish come true.
Jacob was diagnosed with a brain tumour when he was 11. After 18 months of valiantly battling through treatment, Jacob was granted his wish to visit Florida with his family in October 2019. During his time there Jacob enjoyed visits to Disneyland, Universal Studios, and the NASA Space Centre.
Jacob hasn’t let his illness hold him back. In his spare time he loves to rock climb, play cricket and football, and is an active member of his Scouting group. He looks forward to meeting and helping other young people facing tough situations like himself through STARboard.
