Ainske Le Roux (6)
Dream: A cruise to an Island
Ainske is a 6-year-old with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. Ainske’s dream was to go on a cruise ship. Reach for a Dream made this magical dream happen and Ainske and her family were booked on an MSC cruise to the Portuguese Islands. Ainske was very excited for the adventure and could not wait to get to Durban, where the cruise left from.
Upon boarding, Ainske joined a special queue to meet the children’s entertainment crew, who were all dressed up as cartoon characters.
Ainske thoroughly enjoyed all the fun and activities available on the ship; in the cooking classes she had the opportunity to be a chef; she swam in the beautiful pools on deck and devoured lots of ice cream. The crew were very warm and friendly to the children and there was no shortage of entertainment.
“Ainske was very proud that she didn’t get sea-sick. We weren’t so fortunate!”, commented her parents.
