Every person signed up, and donation received, will help grant magical wishes to children like Hamish.
Hamish's family knew something was wrong when he became pale and lethargic and began having pains in his stomach and knees. Hamish was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia – cancer of the white blood cells. The treatment was gruelling for Hamish and made him very sick.
Hamish loves knights and is inspired by tales of brave heroes rescuing damsels in distress. He has an incredible imagination, so it came as no surprise that he wished to become a knight. So we suited up ‘Sir Hamish’ for a magical day as a medieval hero!
On his wish, Hamish was greeted by actors who told him a story of a brave man who becomes a knight. As they told the story, Hamish played the part of the fledgling knight. He fought off baddies with his own sword and shield and rescued his mum Laura from monsters, before being knighted as 'Sir Hamish'.
"It was really good for Hamish to enjoy just being a child instead of having to cope with treatment," Laura told us after Sir Hamish had rescued her. "He had the best time."
By holding your own Wear What You Wish event, you'll be helping grant wishes to children like Hamish. Register with us today to get started.
