On Thursday, December 22nd, Brandon will be the guest of honor at a wish sendoff party. Brandon and his family will be greeted by family and friends for a movie at River Cinema 15. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be on the big screen.
All the fun and excitement is to celebrate that Brandon’s wish is coming true. Brandon and his family will depart in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve for sunny Jamaica! Brandon is a 16-year-old boy from Grand Forks with liver disease.
Leaving behind the snow and cold, Brandon will spend time basking in the sun, sand and surf during his wish. He’ll have plenty of free time to enjoy all there is to see and do at the resort as well as a special dolphin encounter where he’ll have a chance to swim in the deep with two amazing dolphins.
For Brandon and his family this trip will be a chance to leave the stress and worry of being sick behind and spend time together as a family making memories to last a lifetime.
