Colby really enjoyed his surprise 13th birthday party at SEA LIFE Mooloolaba


2nd March 2016

After 506 consecutive days in hospital fighting leukaemia it was great way to celebrate his remission by swapping his wheel chair for a wetsuit and a snorkel with our sharks thanks to Ade, and Dave for organising it all


“Just wanted to write and thank yourself, Dave, the entire Sea Life crew and most importantyly Merlin's Magic Wand so much for Colby's amazing day. I truly can't put into words how amazing our day was from start to finish.  Announcing the swim at the Seal Show was so special and I must say it brought a tear to my eye seeing his reaction.  The kids had a ball and the party food was delicious!   So thankyou :)


Also, if you ever need help to spread the word about the wonderful things that your charity organisation does for families on the Sunshine Coast, we would be more than happy to help.”

From Kim (Colby’s mum)
