"A Healing Effect"
Last year, I shared the heartwarming story of Camille, a child with autism who sailed with her family onboard Freedom of the Seas. Camille didn't let her condition stand in the way of adventure, and with a little help from a caring crewmember, she conquered the FlowRider. Now, we have another story to tell. This one was shared by Maurice Escobar, who sailed on Allure of the Seas with his daughter.
After losing both her sight and hearing at age five, Catalina refused to lose her ambition in life. Even after being diagnosed with a brain tumor, she defied a 6-month life expectancy and is still going strong three years later. She had always wanted to take a cruise and Maurice decided it was finally time to make it happen.
I'll let Maurice tell you the rest:
"My daughter inquired about the rock climbing facility, something I would never have considered due to her mobility issues. After my daughter's persistence, we made an attempt at it. Mr. David Huntington gave me full confidence, and to our amazement, she reached more than five feet off the ground. David advised me she would also enjoy the surfing simulator — which frankly I thought was a crazy notion. But again, my daughter in her persistence, went and visited the FlowRider. David was there and again gave me full confidence as she did what I'd assumed unthinkable. The captured moment resulted in an ovation and a dream of hers that would have been virtually impossible under her condition. There wasn't a dry eye. David will be remembered forever." Whether by land or sea, 🌹Travel is not just for fun and relaxation, but Travel has a Healing Effect.
