Ashley is an energetic, young lady who is living with lupus, but she does not let that dampen her spirits. She lives a very active life and enjoys the outdoors, especially the beach. Her love for the beach, and her sense of adventure helped her choose her wish. Ashley wished to go Maui because she wanted the chance to discover all the beautiful beaches and try the numerous outdoor activities.
On her first day in Maui, she explored the island and took in the gorgeous tropical surroundings. The next day, she toured the island on horseback. Her tour took her through some of Maui’s flourishing landscapes. At times, the greenery was so lush, the sun’s rays could barely get through.
Ashley also had time to go snorkeling. She saw colorful, vibrant fish and green sea turtles. On her last day, she went to an authentic luau. Upon arrival she was greeted with a fragrant, beautifully crafted lei. During the festivities, she dined on Kalua pork, fresh pineapple and other delicious local food.
She enjoyed her trip immensely and did not want to return home. Ashley told her family she would not object to staying another week in paradise. Her wish has given her something to look forward to. Now when Ashley talks about her future adventures, she always tells people she wants to return to the place where her wish came true.
