My Cruise Wish was Awesome!

Name: Quinton
Age: 16
State: MI

At just 6 weeks old, Quinton was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a condition that clogs the lungs with mucus and can cause life-threatening lung infections. He has been in and out of the hospital his entire life and currently takes several different medications and uses a percussion vest to help with breathing. Recently, Quinton was hospitalized due to a reaction he had with a new medication. His kidneys went into failure, but he was finally able to push through the reaction with different medications.

For Quinton’s wish, Kids Wish Network arranged an all expenses paid Carnival cruise that departed from Miami and traveled all the way to Key West, Florida and Cozumel, Mexico. During their stay, Quinton and his family were treated to complimentary shore excursions, a visit with the Captain on the bridge, a relaxing massage at the spa, a tour of the galley with the head chef, and much more.

In Key West, Quinton enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking, and in Cozumel he had a blast riding in a speedboat and relaxing on a private beach with some newly made friends to play volleyball.
