Leukaemia survivor Declan, who is currently in remission after being diagnosed  in 2015, has made a special request to Make-A-Wish Australia. After surviving childhood cancer, Declan’s wish was to blow something up.

The 12-year-old was allowed to spend the day with Australian Federal Police’s (AFP) Specialist Response Group at its Majura headquarters in Canberra. He had the opportunity to see his wish come true; blowing up walls, doors and even have his name spelled out by explosives on a special training ground. You can watch Declan’s experience in the video below.
