When Wish Granters first met with Logan to offer him a wish to shed some hope, strength and joy into what was a very hard time, the young boy knew immediately what his wish would be. Throughout his battle with Lymphoma, Logan used LEGOs, as a distraction from the illness and way to still be a kid.
He and his family knew going to LEGOLAND in California would be a week they all both needed and deserved.
“From the early morning to the end of our flight, Logan was treated like a King,” explained Logan’s mom when she reflected on the wish.
On the way to sunny San Diego, Logan was given an assortment of LEGOs and keepsakes from different organizations that realized he was on his wish journey. Many people stopped to ask what the wish was when they saw the Make-A-Wish t-shirts and offered their admiration and support to Logan. Once they got to California, the family checked into the famous LEGOLAND hotel where they would spend the next five nights.
Throughout their week, Logan and his family did as much as they could to take advantage of the wish. They spent their days at the San Diego Zoo, Sea World and of course the LEGOLAND theme park. The family really enjoyed seeing the exotic animals at the zoo. They also had a great time at Sea World where each family member found something special… His brother and sister loved the whale show, his parents loved feeding the sting rays by hand and Logan loved the upside down rollercoaster which he went on eight times!
Although these days were great, the best day had to have been going to LEGOLAND. Logan was surprised with a private meeting with a Master Builder at LEGOLAND where he was able to create his own LEGO character that was an exact replica of him. Logan’s mom explained he chose for his LEGO lookalike to live in California forever because he had loved his time there so much. Logan also had the opportunity to meet Ninja Go Kai, a famous LEGO character and one of his personal favorites.
No matter where he went, people around Logan always made sure he felt special. On the last night the family decided to visit a Brazilian Steakhouse to celebrate the end of an unforgettable trip. The manager of the Steakhouse heard Logan was a Wish Kid and gave him a private tour of the kitchen and even letting him leave with a signature steak knife to remember the trip by.
“Make-A-Wish you truly blessed our family, thank you from all of us!” expressed Logan’s mom with gratitude.
In honor of funds raised at the 2016 Power of 3 Golf Tournament, Logan’s wish came true. Thank you for your kind contributions to Make-A-Wish Maine.
