Calvin's wish was to go to Chicago with his family and visit other relatives and see some fun things. He had a list of lots of things to do to keep them all very busy. Their journey began by bus and United Healthcare went above and beyond and gave Calvin and his sister suitcases and backpacks full of fun games and activities for the bus ride.

Calvin and his family had a wonderful trip.  This was Calvin’s first time to stay in a hotel and they stayed in the beautiful Hotel InterContinental that had a huge indoor pool that Calvin and his sister swam in every day.  They visited the animals at the Shedd Aquarium and spent hours watching them.  They visited the Museum of Science and Industry, Natural History Museum and went to see the Blue Man Group which Calvin absolutely loved.  They were able to visit family while they were there.  They visited his grandmother, aunts, uncles and lots of his cousins.  The family even through them a big party for being in Chicago!  One of Calvin’s favorite things was going to the Navy pier and seeing all of the boats.

It was so wonderful seeing Calvin have so much fun with everything that he's been through. ”
