Cathryn wished to go to Hawaii

“The trip was filled with smiles, laughter, good times, and pure fun for our girls and, therefore, us as parents. ”

Dear Make-A-Wish Team,

Words cannot describe the amazingly healing nature of our wish trip to Maui. From the moment we got on the early morning shuttle to the arrival back home, there was not a detail left out of our trip’s planning and execution. Every single thing was perfectly coordinated and still left us with lots of time to just hang out and enjoy beautiful Hawaii.

Cathryn has been so much more sensitive to the cold snow cold since she went through treatment. She wants to be in the sun but, due to her medicines, has not been able to experience much outside time in the last few months. Thus, Hawaii this time of year was the perfect place to celebrate her health, end of treatment and to enjoy some much needed down time for all of us together.

The trip was filled with smiles, laughter, good times, and pure fun for our girls and, therefore, us as parents. Cathryn was treated so well but was not singled out in anyway that made her feel like the “cancer kid.” She just felt special the whole time.

Thank you so much!

Cathryn and family
