Alec Cowan, is a 13 year old boy who suffers with T Cell Lymphoma and his dream was to own his own Phantom 4 drone. Alec was completely overwhelmed one day when flying towards him over the ocean was his very own drone. In this moment he and his family forgot all about his illness and the struggles that he faces on a daily basis. Alec sent a message soon after his dream day stating… “Thank you for my drone, I fly it every day. And thank you to RFAD for helping me to know that dreams really do come true.”
Alec’s story is not a unique one, but one that many children in South Africa face. RFAD would like to continue helping as many children as possible to believe in the power of dreams and to encourage them to keep on fighting their illness.
