Porter is described as a “big teddy bear” without a mean bone in his body and a great sense of humor. Although riding a rough road after his diagnosis with Ewing’s Sarcoma, Porter maintains an unfailingly positive attitude.
This 17-year-old can always make you laugh and enjoys longboarding, snowboarding, football, rugby, video games, and a good meal from Tommy’s Burgers.
Porter entered A Wishing Place knowing exactly what he wanted. He loved the Wishing Room and all the colored lights, and he was touched by the different features of A Wishing Place. Although he entertained the unlimited possibilities of being an alien, having an observatory, and even going to outer space, Porter ultimately had one initial and overriding wish — that meant it was time for a Caribbean cruise.
Porter and his family thoroughly enjoyed taking full advantage of all the cruise had to offer. They soaked up the sun on white and black sand beaches and made some incredible memories deep sea scuba diving. The family toured the islands, ate to their hearts’ content … and got just a little bit sea-sick.
Between all the sand, sun, starfish, and swimming, Porter’s wish didn’t disappoint, and he had a true and unforgettable Caribbean adventure.
