Patrick Gets to Visit Grandma

Patrick and his family.

“ To see him run to the beach that first time was amazing. ”


- Wish mom Michelle

Patrick loves to spend time with family and play in the sun. When the 4-year-old was asked what his heartfelt wish was, he said, “spending time with grandma and playing on the playground.” Patrick’s Grandma used to live nearby, but moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, around the time he got sick, making time to have some fun in the sun with her a perfect wish that Wish Granters Jessica Gallo and Sandy Worona helped craft!

Patrick and his family stayed at a resort with Myrtle Beach’s only indoor water park, where he got to splash and play all week. The trip included tickets to all of the famous Ripley’s Attractions, such as the Aquarium, Mirror Maze, Moving Theatre and Believe It or Not Museum. When he wasn’t exploring, Patrick was swimming in the ocean or running around the playground and going down all of the slides with his brother.

“To see him run to the beach that first time was amazing,” mom Michelle said.

And there was plenty of time to spend with Grandma.

After being away from his grandmother for so long, Patrick and his family are grateful for the fun and relaxing week they were able to enjoy together.
