"Lexi's wish was to go to Hawaii...from start to finish her wish granters, Marty and Andrea as well as everyone at Make-A-Wish were wonderful. Western Nevada Supply was the Adopt-A-Wish Sponsor and they went above and beyond. They had a chance to meet with Lexi prior to us leaving to Hawaii and they sent her on an epic scavenger hunt...providing her and our family with so many extras for our trip. We boarded our plane in Reno and were off the end of May...all so excited. Our very large family arrived on Maui..stayed at the beautiful Sheraton of Maui...right on the water along side a stunning pool. Everything about this was magical. For the first time we were enjoying our family without the shadow of cancer. Laughing and living in every moment. Celebrating not just Lexi's life but making new wonderful memories. Make a Wish literally makes you forget for those moments why you are there. They give you a gift you can never repay...they touch families in ways I never knew possible..we are so grateful."
