Trey goes to Disney Aulani Resort
Upon his arrival, Trey couldn’t stop talking about the trip. He talked about the pool, the slides, the Mexican food, shrimp wagon down the street, and the snow cones. One of Trey’s favorite excursions they went on was to Pearl Harbor. He said that it was so cool to see the ships and all the fighter gear. He truly thought it was an amazing opportunity to see it all, even it if was a very emotional day. When they arrived to the resort, Trey was told about a turtle that visits and resides near the resort. While Trey and his dad were out kayaking and canoeing in the water one day, they got to see that very turtle and Trey thought it was so cool. He said that all the experiences that he got to have while on the trip were so incredible. He truly feels blessed and loved the trip. He said it was by far the coolest and best trip he has ever been on with his family. The family couldnt stop expressing their thanks, they said the hospitality of the trip was amazing and they will forever be grateful for this memory.
Thank You Letter
I just wanted to say thank you to you and your charity. I’m sure you are aware the make-a-wish donation you made has gone to our family.
Last september our son Trey (12 years old) was diagnosed with cancer. It was the worst moment of our lives. He was air lifted from Red Deer by Stars to Calgary because of a large tumor crushing his air ways (amoung other things) making breathing near impossible. It was a brutal fall and winter. Our social worker at the hospital got the ball rolling for Treys wish. This time last year I would never have dreamt a wish would be possible for him. We were told in the summer that Treys wish had been granted but we didnt know anything else. Friends of ours were at the Gord Bamford golf tournament and the announcement was made about Trey being granted his wish by you.
I am sending you this email because most times when people give they don’t know who it affects. Well I wanted you to know. We are so very grateful, I truly have no words to properly express how we feel. I wish with all my heart that Trey had never had to go through what he did and that he still has to go through it. But the fact that we are able to celebrate his life in this way is truly amazing!
Thank you Gord to you and your organization! Its an amazing thing that you are doing!
We leave for Hawaii on sunday and can’t wait to leave our stress of the last year behind! Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts!!
