I wish to go on a Hawaiian cruise

Ella's wish was one spent enjoying the island breeze and soft sandy beaches!

When it comes to describing Ella, there’s only one thing that comes to mind… the beach! Despite being diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma at just 5 years old, her energetic personality and love for the sand and water remained just as strong.

Having been on a cruise in the past and to Hawaii on a separate trip, Ella was certain her most heartfelt wish would be to combine the two and go on a Hawaiian cruise with her family! For her, nothing is more important than time spent with family and she looked forward to creating lifelong memories with them.

During their trip, Ella felt like a true paradise queen. From eating delicious colorful shaved ice to feeling the soft sand between her toes, her wish was everything she could have dreamed of. Throughout their many stops along the islands, Ella and her family enjoyed several fun activities, such as snorkeling the deep blue seas!

There are so many memories that Ella will always treasure very near to her heart, but two of her most favorite memories are the ones spent finding different sand creatures and attempting to bury her dad in sand!

Ella and her family are very grateful that her most heartfelt wish came true. She is so glad she was able to experience this magical trip with her entire family!
