Jenna’s Wish Trip to Hawaii

Since Jenna was diagnosed with a terminal disease, the Ottawa chapter of the Make a Wish Foundation offered to send Jenna and her family on a trip to wherever Jenna wanted. Jenna decided on Hawaii and on December 29th, Jenna, her Dad, Step-Mom and her best friend Brittany got on a plane and flew to Honolulu, Hawaii.


Jenna was feeling pretty good during this trip and she enjoyed seven sun fun filled days forgetting about cancer, needles and chemotherapy.


They stayed at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu.  When they arrived, Jenna was having feet problems. They were swelling up at night and she couldn't walk so her Dad got her a wheel chair...but she doesn't like using it. After a day or so, things improved and Jenna was able to enjoy shopping, sun bathing, swimming with the dolphins, Sea Doo riding, submarine rides, and an unforgettable New Year's Eve on the beach. The weather was great, in the mid 70's so not too hot.
Many thanks go out to the Make a Wish Foundation for giving Jenna and her family some unforgettable memories.
