SEVEN-year-old schoolboy Xavier Westcott has waited patiently for three years to have his Make-A-Wish Foundation dream come true.

Xavier has fought and suffered from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia since he was diagnosed in June 2013.

Until recently, he had not been healthy enough to travel until he finished his final treatment last year.

The battle has not been an easy one for Xavier and his family but after last chemo treatment in October he received the all-clear to receive his wish.

Xavier was presented with a holiday to the east coast with his family in front of fellow Assumption Catholic Primary School students at the recent school assembly where students also raised money for Make-A-Wish by dressing up as their favourite superhero.

He and his class also shared in a class party where Xavier used his new guitar from Make-A-Wish to play his classmates a song.

Xavier will travel to the east coast with his parents Jody and Damien and younger brother Oliver where the most special item will be a visit to the Australia Zoo.
