Jaydon wished to go to a place that is beautiful, warm and inviting. A place where “aloha” wasn’t just a welcome, but a lifestyle. This year, his wish to go to Hawaii with his family came true, thanks to support like yours.
Jaydon, his parents and his four siblings arrived at the Lihue Airport on the island of Kauai excited to experience Jaydon’s wish in paradise. Thanks to a welcome featuring fresh flower leis, the family felt like VIPs — little did they know that this was just the start of the extraordinary care they would receive on the island.
The next morning, Jaydon woke up to a view unlike anything seen in Wyoming — the ocean! Dressed in swimming gear under the warm sun, Jaydon and his family walked down to the beach where they met surf instructors for their private, family surf lessons. After a quick tutorial, Jaydon was ready to hit the waves with his family.
While on his wish trip, Jaydon had the opportunity to tube through the distinct lava channels, an experience that bridges the rich history and the picturesque scenery of the islands. The unique tubing route runs through some of the most beautiful and remote land on the island of Kauai, since it began as an irrigation system for a former plantation. He and his family spent the day taking in the island’s natural beauty and learning about the land and sea.
A vacation in paradise is truly good medicine — just ask Jaydon. The memories of his wish trip will be something that Jaydon and his family can smile about for years to come.
