Alby's Dream Story

Alby's dream come true

Family comes first for adventurous Alby, a seven-year-old from Newcastle who is living with a rare form of muscular dystrophy, a life-limiting condition that causes his muscles to waste away. This may affect his ease of movement, but Alby never wants to miss out on what everyone else is getting up to, so it’s no surprise that he loves joining in with all his family’s outdoor activities.

Sometimes there is nothing better than spending time with those closest to you, something Alby definitely thinks is true! His dad Keith explained that, whatever it is that they are doing, Alby always wants to include the whole family. Alby doesn’t let his condition get in his way, and as a family they always focus on how there is so much that Alby can do - whether that is engaging his adventurous side as a bold rock climber or taking his wheelchair out for a sight-seeing spin on the fells in the Lake District.

A sun-soaked holiday in Gran Canaria was the perfect chance to make some memories together and get up to some adventurous exploits as a family. All of the worries the family usually have on holidays disappeared when they arrived at their hotel and were put immediately at ease.

Alby absolutely loved his dream break, particularly the swimming pool which he never wanted to get out of! Having the wider family there made such a difference to sociable Alby that now he never wants to go on holiday without them all again.

Better still, the trip allowed him to make some new friends, and just three weeks after his trip, one of the families he befriended came to visit him!
