Alexis Sails Away!

     Alexis, an amazing 18-year-old girl bravely battling an endocrine disorder, was given a wish from Make-A-Wish® Colorado right as she was about to exit high school and enter college. When deciding on her wish, she wanted to take a trip that allowed for adventure and relaxation before this big change in her life. She wished to take a Caribbean cruise!
     On the cruise, Alexis and her family were treated like royalty. The cruise staff did everything they could to make every aspect of the trip special. Alexis was able to tour parts of Haiti, exploring seemingly endless white sand beaches and zip-lining over exotic jungles. Alexis even was able to swim with dolphins, which brought tons of laughter and smiles for everyone!
     Alexis’s mom said that the entire trip, from start to finish, was a dream comes true. They were able to spend time together as a family without the weight of Alexis’s endocrine disorder weighing upon them. It was an experience they will never forget.
