A Caribbean adventure

Xavier is a 12-year-old boy who loves science fiction. On top of being fascinated by sci-fi, Xavier loves geography and history. His big heart, perseverance and ambition are his most noticeable traits. At just 12 years of age, he already knows that he wants to be a lawyer when he grows up. He told the wish granters that he chose this career to be able to help others.

When the wish granters met Xavier and his family, they couldn’t help being charmed by them. As they were talking, Xavier confided that his greatest wish was to go on a Caribbean cruise. It came as no surprise that Xavier’s eyes were filled with joy when he found out that the Make-A-Wish Quebec team would make his wish come true!

Soon after, Xavier and his family packed their bathing suits, sunscreen and summer hats and flew to Florida to start their adventure! During the trip, Xavier visited Cozumel, Costa Maya, Roatan and Harvest Caye. He even had the chance to meet the boat’s captain! The warm weather and tropical landscapes were the perfect backdrop to have a great time with his family.    


It is proven that the wish experience transforms the lives of ill children. For Xavier, this trip allowed him to experience something he will never forget. Now, when he has to face more difficult times, he will be able to cherish the beautiful moments he shared with his family. We hope that the joy that he experienced on this trip will make him want to discover even more new places and pursue his dream of helping others.

A special thank-you to Bombardier for their generosity through the Adopt-A-Wish program, which allowed us to grant Xavier’s wish.               

We also wish to thank our partners: Norwegian Cruise Line, Sony and TuGo, for helping to make this wish come true.
