Discovery Cove Helps Realise a Dream

Discovery Cove Helps Realise a Dream
Discovery Cove was helping fulfill a seriously-ill girl’s dream, by enabling her to experience the thrill of swimming with Dolphins.

The event was organised in partnership with the Starlight Children’s Foundation on behalf of Twelve-year-old Lucy Bolton, from Bessacarr, who had been tragically diagnosed with a malignant tumour last year. The discovery of the tumour led to an intensive course of chemotherapy followed by major surgery at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. When the Starlight Children’s Foundation heard about Lucy’s bravery, along with her dream of swimming with dolphins, they leapt at the chance of helping out by flying Lucy and her parents out to Florida.

The Discovery Cove crew was on hand to help her realise her dream, which was topped off with a visit to some of the other great attractions in the area. “I never imagined I would ever get a chance to swim with dolphins,” Lucy said after arriving back from her trip. “I can’t thank Starlight enough for making my dream come true.”
