I wish to go to Hawaii

Gavin, wish granted in 2019
nervous system disorder

Gavin wish was a trip to Hawaii. At Make-A-Wish, we believe the wish should include the whole family. When a child is facing a critical illness, it effects the entire family, often disrupting schedules and separating parents and siblings for weeks or months. A wish can be an opportunity for a family to focus on spending time together, providing hope, strength and joy for all involved.
