  • Panama!

Grady, a cystic fibrosis warrior, is an energetic and thrill-seeking 13-year-old boy who loves going on adventures. When he was given the chance to have a wish granted by Make-A-Wish® Colorado, he wished to explore a new land full of adventure: Panama!

He and his family zip-lined through the rain forest, snorkeled in the ocean and enjoyed soaking up quality time together! “This changed our lives – we talk about our trip often,” said his mother. The family embraced the Panamanian culture by drinking from fresh coconuts, admiring the historic architecture and exploring the infamous Panama Canal. And of course, the trip included fun in the ocean!

This international journey was incredibly impactful for Grady and his family. His mom explained the trip has given the family something happy to hold onto during low points and daily stresses that come with Grady’s illness. She emphasized, “When things have gotten difficult, we reminisce about Panama.” Grady and his family are grateful for the memories that will last a lifetime.
