I wish to go to the Georgia Mountains

Christopher3 (1)Four-year-old Christopher has a smile that could melt any heart and a taste for adventure. When asked what his true wish might be, he wasted no time in letting his wish granters know that he wanted to return to the Georgia cabin that he fondly remembered from a previous family vacation.

Before setting off on his wish, Christopher’s wish granters made sure to send him off in style with a new fishing pole and red wagon, handy items for any mountain trip. Christopher could hardly contain his excitement as he anticipated the adventures to come.

During the family’s stay in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains, Christopher and his family enjoyed a jam-packed itinerary of fishing, gem mining, mini golf, and feeding fish at the Chattahoochee National Fish Hatchery. Driving up to Chattanooga, Tennessee for the day, Christopher was thrilled to meet his favorite cartoon train character at the Creative Discovery Museum and hang out with a real life steam engine train and its crew at the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum. The highlight of Christopher’s train-filled day was getting to blow the horn and ring the bell alongside the train’s conductor. On the final day of the wish experience, Christopher and his family were able to be face to face with sea life at The Georgia Aquarium.

This wish trip allowed Christopher and his family to find fun and respite amidst his battle with cancer. Together they made enough memories to last a lifetime, and spent much-needed time in the great outdoors, away from doctors and hospitals. His family expressed gratitude for their experience, thankful that Christopher could have “the time of his life.”
