Help a child like Luke

Three year old Luke, also known as ‘Super Luke’, often imagines being able to fly. When he was born he was sadly diagnosed with the congenital heart condition Tetralogy of Fallot and his future is unclear.

When Luke came to us, he knew exactly what his wish would be… to fly like Superman – because he is Super Luke! He was taken by limousine to a special harness team who told him all he needed to do was put his hand up in the air and he would fly, and he did. Again and again and again… all day in fact. His sister Olivia got in on the action too, giving them both the opportunity to fly together!

A wish gives seriously-ill children and their family’s precious time away from their daily routines of hospitals and treatment. After the wish, Luke’s mum Sarah told us: "The wish allowed Luke to be a child for the day and just enjoy himself. There was no one there worrying about him… he could do whatever he wanted. It was great to have lots of people there who weren’t doctors."
