It would not be wrong to say that a four-day sailing trip was reward for the 11-year-old boy, who has won battle against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. He took part in the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust sailing event, which went from Cowes.
Matthew Melia has best time of his life at the trip. He was of the view that he had enjoyed every bit of the trip. He was diagnosed with the cancer in 2007, and since then, he has been in and out from the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
When he got to know to take part in the trip then he thought it to be the best way to rejuvenate him. There were 25 other children as well, who were fighting from other forms of cancer.
On being asked about the organizer of event, Melia was of the view, "It was really, really good meeting Ellen, she was really nice. She had her dog with her and had different whistles for him because he's so highly trained".
The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is a charity, which is a known charity that helps young people to recover from cancer and other terminal illnesses. The charity is gaining strength year after year since its opening in 2003.
