A new view of the world restores hope

Shimmering canals, crisp mountain views, and colorful old architecture is all Haley dreams of.

Haley has always had a penchant for exploration. She often finds herself daydreaming of far away places she could go, but when Haley was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, those daydreams seemed more distant than ever.

Haley had begun to see her wish to travel the world as an impossibility, so when the Make-A-Wish community came together to grant her wish to go on a European cruise, the narrative for her life was forever changed. The impossible was now possible.

Equipped with a camera and a backpack, Haley traveled the seas with her family to explore the beautiful places she has always dreamed of. As the cruise ship sailed the Mediterranean, Haley couldn’t believe they were in other countries. The Greek and Italian coastlines reflecting in her blue sunglasses seemed surreal. 

After her trip, Haley understands the impact of a wish granted. With renewed mental and physical stamina, she now knows she can achieve her dreams and continue her journey with courage and bravery.
