My Life Now with Reid

My Life Now with Reid
Reid was having a normal day at school up until his dad picked him up early to go to the hospital. Results had just come in from what his pediatrician initially suspected to be “Cat’s Scratch Disease.” Turns out, it was cancer.

Capturing the Power of a Wish

Camron's Wish

We are forever grateful to those who made our son’s wish such an amazing experience. His wish was to explore an active volcano and learn from the experts. He thinks that Kilauea is special; more special than any volcano around the world.

My Life Now with Kristen

Kristen
Kristen was a typical Hawaii teenager transitioning from high school to college. Life as he knew it took a drastic turn when he went to the doctor for pain, to find out that he was diagnosed with a type of bone cancer. A week before his first year in college, he had to drop everything and begin treatment. All this, in just a two week span.
