Description

My name is Joslyn and I am 18 years old - I have reverse peristalsis and gastro paresis. I went through a lot of pain over the last 5 years. The day Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida told me my wish to go to Hawaii would be granted gave me more willpower to fight this disease. From that day forward, I fought harder not to get sick so I could go on my trip. Hawaii felt like a wonderful dream. Make-A-Wish had a lot of fun activities set up for me and my family. We were given a rental car and stayed at a beautiful beach resort. We were greeted with leis. We went to a luau and horseback riding in the mountains. But my most memorable moment was swimming with the dolphins. I forgot about my illness, I forgot all the pain, all I remember is pure joy. I was playing with my most favorite creature in the world, not to mention in the most beautiful place in the world.
