Macsen's Wish Story


"Saying our last goodbyes"

Macsen was a courageous, brave young boy and I am so proud that he became our first ambassador for Dreams & Wishes. He always showed great kindness to others and considered other people at all times. He was so supportive of the work we do, caring for children and their families. It was a great honour and privilege to be asked by Macsen’s family to speak at his funeral, it was a very moving day but the strength of Macsens family was incredible and a credit to them. The love shone through as did the sunshine on a very cloudy day when we were saying our last goodbyes to Macsen.

Thank you Macsen for being such a wonderful Ambassador. 

We are very sorry to announce that our brave and courageous boy, Macsen has died aged 11. 

Macsen's Wish Story

He dealt with his leukaemia with stoicism and tolerance, in a way far more mature than his tender age. He kept his humour till the end and we will miss him forever for it

He was so proud to be a Young Ambassador for Dreams and Wishes and we will be eternally grateful to the charity for giving us the opportunity to surprise and treat Macs when he needed it most. We will all cherish all those memories we’ve had as a family, as a result. We hope the good work that Dreams and Wishes do, can live on in Macsen’s name and his story continues to be an inspiration.
