Lyndsey has always wanted to explore the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia.
She has fond memories snorkeling with her parents as a younger kid on summer trips to Florida and wanted to experience those happy memories again.
Going through her difficult medical treatments, her wish was the one thing that kept her going. Thanks to Bristol-Myers Squibb and Make-A-Wish®, Lyndsey and her family traveled halfway around the world to go snorkeling in one of the world’s most accessible reefs and travel by jeep on a wildlife tour – she even got to hold
Lyndsey’s wish was an opportunity to break from the routine of her constant hospital visits. It gave her the opportunity to be more than a sick kid and knock something off her ultimate bucket list.
“This was the most perfect trip and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Lyndsey’s mom, Tina. “Lyndsey has the time of her life and will never forget this experience.”
