Myles' Wish to Go to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

Name: Myles
Age: 18
Medical condition: Multiple Sclerosis
Wish: I wish to go to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

With a deep passion for music, Myles knew he wanted to see some of his favourite performers in a location with a strong connection to the music. “Being able to see and experience some of the best musicians alive was absolutely unbelievable and very memorable,” says Myles.

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, deemed one of the best music festivals in the US by Life magazine, was an opportunity for Myles and his parents to watch an amazing line-up of artists and experience the culture and food of New Orleans.

At the festival, Myles saw 28 different musical acts. He was amazed by all of the talent and was able to discover new favourites. But, the highlight of the trip for him was seeing one of his favourite musicians, Buddy Guy, perform.

The family also explored the city of New Orleans and surrounding bayous; a swamp tour was another highlight with an energetic, crocodile-wrangling guide.

With the generous support of local organizations and individuals we continue to share the power of a wish® with the children in our area. We sincerely thank Respiratory Home Care Solutions for sponsoring Myles’ wish through the Adopt-A-Wish® program.
