Last saturday (17th of february), the Benelux Base participated in a charity event organised by Make-A-Wish for a 10 year old cancer patient...... MAW asked us to make a special appreance and of course as the Rebels we are we said yes !

Bart, who is a real Star Wars fan didn't know anything about the day that was planned out for him. Seeing that boy smile by our appearance in Star Wars outfit made it all worthwhile..... and it helped him to forget for one day the hard time he is having and his long way to recovery.

He still has a long way to go but knowing now that the force is strong with him we rest assure he will make a full recovery. As soon Bart is better he will be invited also as a VIP on our next big convention.

So to Bart, one of the biggest and bravest Rebels I've ever seen, god speed and a very quick recovery so you can hang out again once more with the new Rebel friends that you've made

Just follow the links to look at the pictures of that day ! (more will follow)

I enjoined this very much. To see that little boy smile because of our personal appereance at his home, there's absoluty nothing that can compete with that.

There is nothing harder for parents I think then having a sick little one at home, in the case one with cancer. I never thought about it in the past but since I became a daddy myself recently I do realize this must be hard on the parents.

Our prayers and support go out to them and we will be there when things get tough but the good news is that Bart is recovering very well and yes I keep in close contact to keep up-to-date.

I would like to do something like that a few times a year. This is what it is all about people and I can say for sure right now there is more to come !

*** EDIT *** cleaned up the first post, link repaired
