A special day for Louis and his family

Little 5yr old Louis Walsh from Castlebar, Mayo is a wonderful bright, lively, little boy full of the joys of life but fortunately is unaware of the difficult future ahead of him. Louis has a rare genetic condition “Duchene Muscular Dystrophy” which involves the progressive weakening and wasting of the muscles, and at the moment he is currently walking but needs a wheelchair from time to time.

However, now Louis is full of life and like all children he wants to play and have fun with his siblings and friends but he is limited to where he can go because of his condition.

Louis mother Anne Marie contacted Share a Dream to see if there was anything they could do to bring a little magic into the life of their. So, Louis along with all his family travelled to Limerick last weekend before heading to Dreamland on Sunday the 18th June 2017.

Louis and his family arrived to Dreamland play centre that was closed to the public for Louis special visit: a bus load of the Share a Dream Mayo Dream Team also joined them in Dreamland, where Louis had the chance to meet Spiderman, his favourite character.

 “When we contacted Robbie, the Share dream committee in Mayo, we did not believe that Share a Dream would do this for our son and for all of us. Louis is such a good little lad but he is going through so much with his illness so we are forever grateful for these memories and we will cherish them forever”, said Mum Anne Marie.
