"I’m not surrounded by busy streets full of perfect people."
Visually impaired from having retinoblastoma when he was a baby, Isaac does his best to stay positive.
“It does make me sad sometimes, but I think I can get over it.”
It motivated him to get involved with everything across the week, his favourite part being the chance to take the helm of the yacht.
Isaac made lots of friends across the week after some pre-trip nerves. He bonded with his crew mates in no time at all and felt the benefits almost immediately.
“I don’t really feel as lonely as I do in the real world because everyone has had cancer here and normally, in London, only a handful of people have cancer.”
"I don’t feel as lonely as I do in the real world."
Feeling isolated doesn’t just come from having no one to talk to. Sometimes, it can happen when comparing yourself to others.
Back home, Isaac was aware of how healthy the people around him are.
“Here, I’m not surrounded by busy streets full of perfect people.”
But he had a magical time on his trip.
