Football fanatic Christopher, from Scotland, was only 15 when he was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma. He has been through a very difficult time and wanted something to look forward to, his dream has always been to watch his favourite football team Real Madrid play at their home ground. Dreams Come True were delighted to fly Christopher and his family to Madrid to watch Real Madrid play against Valencia. He even got to see his footballing hero Cristiano Ronaldo play – this was beyond his wildest dreams.
Christopher’s dream was to see Real Madrid football team play in Madrid at the world-famous Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and he went with his mum, brother and step dad. Dreams Come True also organised a guided tour around the stadium and Christopher was overwhelmed. He had to pinch himself that he was actually watching Real Madrid in Madrid! He said the atmosphere was “electric” with some great footballing action and an end score of a 2 all draw.
Christopher is now 17 and thankfully now in remission, he is grateful to everyone who helped make his dream a reality, he said his dream trip to Madrid is an experience he will never forget.
“I loved the match, Dreams Come True paid for the tickets to go to the match which was Real Madrid v Valencia. It was amazing to be in the stadium and the fans and people were very nice, the atmosphere was crazy! Plus, I got to see all of my favourite players like Cristiano Ronaldo! On the Monday we went for a tour of the Bernabeu stadium which was also organised by Dreams Come True, The weather was great and on one of the other days we went to the Park de attractions theme park, it was massive and so much fun. I can't thank Dreams Come True enough for making all of this possible for me and my family, I will always remember this.”
