Last Year’s Wishes
This summer alone, the Make-A-Wish Hawaii Young Leaders Board is aiming to grant 600 wishes in Hawaii! Last year was a huge success, but it is important to continue to support the local children of Hawaii who are battling critical illnesses. Nothing imaginable is more inspirational than hearing the stories of granted wishes, so read these heartwarming wishes that were granted by last year’s Waffles For Wishes.
- Irieyana’s one wish after being diagnosed with nervous system disorder was to meet her favorite Disney character, Queen Elsa. On her trip to Disney World, or the land of Arendale, Irieyana was transformed into a fairy tale princess right in time for her to meet the queen of her dreams, Elsa. Irieyana’s wish experience gave her strength and the hope that nothing could get in the way of her dreams.
- When Kahuena was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, his one wish to see something he had never seen before—snow. He left Maui with his family to go to New Mexico. His dream was to have a snowball fight with his family. Kahuena had a blast throwing snowballs at his cousins and tubing down a mountain with his parents. Living his wish is something he will never forget especially since his wish was a celebration of survival and remission.
