A wish trip often brings a first-time experience, but for ten-year-old Aiden and his family, their trip to London brought lots of firsts.
Aiden is a huge fan of the iconic London clocktower, Big Ben. While going through his bone marrow transplant, he watched many documentaries and YouTube videos about the mechanics of the massive tower. To be able to see it in person would mean a long flight, but Aiden knew he wanted to go more than anything!
It was Aiden and his brothers’ first time on an airplane and the long flight overseas gave them quite the experience!
After landing, Aiden and his family experienced many more firsts as they traveled to places around the country. Together, they visited all the iconic London sights like Big Ben and the Tower Bridge, while also learning about British history in many castles and museums. Not to mention all the new food they sampled along the way!
“We were able to enjoy a stress-free time as a family,” Kathleen, Aiden’s mom, said. “Having uninterrupted family time helped us grow even closer together. We are so grateful for this experience.”
