BROOKLIN — Brandon Higgins, a 15-year-old Brooklin resident battling a cancerous brain tumor, has been awarded a dream trip from the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Maine.
An avid basketball fan, especially if the Boston Celtics are playing, Higgins’ heartfelt wish to attend the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles will be granted Sunday, culminating an event-packed weekend that begins today, Feb. 17, when he and his family leave for the West Coast.
“Brandon loves basketball and followed the Celtics religiously,” his mother, Louanne Higgins, said in a prepared statement released by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. “We bought him a ticket to a game for Christmas, and while he was on his way down to Boston, he became very sick and couldn’t go. That’s when we knew something was wrong.”
A freshman at Deer Isle-Stonington High School, Higgins was diagnosed in January with an inoperable, cancerous tumor in his brain stem.
The residents of Brooklin and neighboring communities have rallied to help Higgins and his family during his recovery effort.
The website brandonsrecovery.com has been established to allow friends to follow Higgins’ progress and to communicate with Higgins and his family members, including his mother, a popular secretary at the Brooklin School, his father, Kevin, a manager at a local grocery store and his older sister, Ashley.
The website includes a link to Facebook, where visitors can find up-to-the-minute posts from the Higgins family and the latest news on events being planned to help the family.
