A nineteen-year-old boy suffering from Cystic Fibrosis recently had his dream come true thanks to the help of Starlight Children's Foundation.
Bertie Chambers, from Horsham in West Sussex, was lucky enough to meet former world number one Luke Donald at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
Luke gave Bertie a private putting lesson and offered him lots of advice, a real treat for Bertie, whose life-shortening illness means he has to take 70 tablets daily and undergo physiotherapy twice a week.
Bertie was accompanied by his friend Kieran and Starlight even arranged for a limo to take them to Wentworth.
Kate, Bertie's mum, said: "Bertie's golf is an added incentive to stay fit and healthy. Bertie's illness certainly does not define him; instead what is more outstanding in our son is his zest for life, humour and his unwavering passion for the sport of golf."
After meeting one of the best golfers on the planet, Bertie said: "I had a wonderful time. Starlight did a fantastic job and made loads of effort and I am truly grateful for my meeting with Luke."
