Devin's wish to go to Hawaii!

Devin is a 17-year-old girl suffering from Charge Syndrome. Devin loves the water and her one true wish was to go swim in the Hawaii waves.

In November 2016, Devin and her family were sent off in a white limousine and greeted by a WestJet representative at the Ottawa airport. This is when Devin and her family would begin their Hawaii vacation!

Upon their arrival in Hawaii they were greeted with a fragrant, fresh flower lei and driven to the Sheraton. The first adventure was at Ko Olina Adventure Tours where she had a marvellous ocean adventure seeing turtles and all kinds of exotic wildlife.

On the second day, the family did the Chief Luau with Hawaiian crafts, a traditional Hawaiian feast and professional Luau entertainers.

One of Devin's favourite activities was the helicopter ride! Devin and her family took a one-hour helicopter tour took her from scenic Sacred Falls to historic Pearl Harbor.

Devin had an amazing time swimming in the ocean, surfing and spending quality time with her family!

Thank you to WestJet, Sony, TuGo and Make-A-Wish Hawaii for helping make this wish come true!

Special thank you to Tysen's Mission to a Million for adopting her wish.
