Joseph, 5, from west suburban Wayne was diagnosed with
neuroblastoma, a cancer that develops in nerve tissue, in addition to other
medical conditions. He wished to encounter a dolphin up close. Joseph’s wish
was granted last year when Make-A-Wish sent him and his family to the Atlantis
resort, where he spent time at Dolphin Cay, where he not only got the chance to
swim with dolphins, but his family enjoyed a more normal week of enjoying each
other without doctor or hospital visits.
