Student awaiting kidney transplant receives Carolina SkiffPosted on
A 17-year-old student in Kennebunk, Maine, who is in need of a kidney transplant was all smiles Monday when he received his dream boat through Portland Yacht Services and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Ethan Houle got the royal treatment as he was escorted in an SUV limousine to Coast Guard Sector Northern New England, which served his favorite meal of prime rib for lunch, followed by a tour of the station.
An avid boater, along with his mother, Teresa, Ethan Houle said being on the water “takes you away from everything,” the York County Coast Star reports.
“I look forward to going for a ride soon,” he said, looking at the boat, which has bench seating and enough room on the bow for his dog, Toby.
