Derilana's wish to go to Kauai!

Derilana is an adorable 11-year-old girl who was diagnosed with leukemia when she was 7. She has now completed all of her treatments and she is doing very well.

Her favourite hobbies include playing soccer, reading, and going for walks. Derilana also enjoys playing the ukulele. Derilana’s wish was to go to Kauai with her family. Ever since Derilana saw the movie Soul Surfer, she dreamed to go to Hawaii. Her whole family was a great support while she was going through her treatments and it was important for her to have them as part of her wish experience. Last fall Derilana was surprised by her wish granters with a special treasure hunt to announce that her wish was coming true.     

In May Derilana and her family were whisked away to the beautiful island of Kauai to enjoy a fun family vacation. The family had a fantastic trip! “Your team outdid yourselves making this the best wish ever to come true. Thank you for allowing us to have this time with our family. It was unbelievable!

Special thanks to Kernels for adopting Derilana’s wish and to WestJet Cares for Kids, TuGo, SCCF for their generous support.
