This year my family and I were surprised when we were selected to go on a trip of our choice provided by the Jack and Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation. They make it possible for families struggling with cancer to be able to go to the place of their dreams. Since my dad had never been to Pearl Harbor, we selected to visit Oahu for a couple of days. The beauty of Hawaii, and Oahu showed itself in the first day of being there. With no rains and warm temperatures, it was something only found in dreams. The staff of the resort we were staying at were the most welcoming people ever, greeting us with open arms and leis. Tears of joy were exchanged and our fun started.
