Lexi wished to go to Hawaii

The favorite part of the trip by far was kissing and swimming with the dolphins.

“ Kissing dolphins made Lexi’s adventure memorable. ”

Nicknamed “Strawberry Shortcake” by Lexi’s wish granters for her bright red hair, wide smile and shy, yet bubbly personality, 3-year-old Lexi wished for her family to have a once in a lifetime experience in Hawaii! With her love for dolphins, butterflies, water and adventure, it was no question that the beautiful Aloha State was the perfect choice for Lexi. Having never traveled before, Lexi’s whole family was warmly welcomed after stepping out of her limo by Allegiant Air, and started with a sneak peek of what it’s like to be a pilot! After landing and sticking their toes in the warm sand, Lexi and her family couldn’t wait to jump into the ocean for the first time ever.

During her ultimate vacation, Lexi said her favorite part was by far kissing and swimming with the dolphins! Her whole family also enjoyed seeing her fill with joy on their private tour of a butterfly farm!  The wish family also shared their excitement in their glass-bottom boat tour, lei greetings, “endless yummy food” and learning the “hang loose” hand sign from the locals! Lexi experienced her version of an “adventure”.

Lexi will still be fighting ALL, but the power of a wish has made her a more confident little girl. We don’t know how to thank Make-A-Wish® enough! It was a lifetime experience we will all never forget! ”
