Hunter is 10 years old and lives in Canton with her parents and big brother. She is in the 5th grade and loves her science class. She also enjoys doing arts and crafts and playing outside whenever she can. Hunter was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in March, 2011 and has been fighting a tough battle ever since.
What a great gift that Hunter’s dream to go on a Nickelodeon Cruise came true! The trip gave her and her family a much needed escape from the hospital and medical treatments. Hunter was treated like royalty during the entire six night cruise! She had special VIP photo shoots with the Nickelodeon characters, was first in line for all activities and received special seating for all meals. She even got to hang out poolside with Sponge Bob Squarepants!
Michael was just 14 years old when he was diagnosed with Leukemia and began his journey at the University of Michigan Children’s Hospital. Now 17, Michael loves Science and Art, listening to rock music, playing the drums and watching his favorite TV show, Myth Busters.
Michael’s ultimate passion is diving and his wish was to become a Master Diver! We worked closely with our friends at US Scuba to outline all of the courses, dives and excursions required for Master Diver certification. We enrolled Michael in the curriculum which included fifty dives, four specialty classes, a diver stress and rescue class as well as a special dive expedition in Tobermory, Canada.
We are pleased to announce that Michael is now officially a Master Diver, and we are so proud of his accomplishment!
