Jackson's Relaxing Hawaiian Vacation!

     A trip to Hawaii is on nearly everyone’s bucket list, but for 5-year-old Jackson, it was about more than seeing the beautiful beaches and playing in the ocean. The trip was about spending time away from the constant doctor appointments and therapy sessions Jackson has to have due to his nervous system disorder.
     All the time spent with doctors and specialists makes going on vacations as a family extremely difficult, so when Make-A-Wish® Colorado granted Jackson a wish, the choice was clear- a vacation of a lifetime to Hawaii for much-needed family time and relaxation.
     “Going to the beach was a favorite part for our family,” Jackson’s mom said. “It gave us time to just be together, play and have fun! It was our very first trip as a family, and Jackson’s first time visiting the beach.”
     To provide the family with a way to always remember their trip, Make-A-Wish Colorado teamed up with Make-A-Wish Hawaii to take photos of the Murray family on the beach. Jackson’s favorite part of this photoshoot was when the photographer brought out a dozen sprinkle donuts!
     “The coordination with Make-A-Wish Hawaii was incredible,” Jackson’s mom said. “We are so grateful to capture those sweet memories!”
