Late in the summer of 2013, Brian and his family traveled to Hawaii and had a wonderful trip!
“Everything was just perfect,” is what 18-year old Brian Collister’s mom said about his wish to go to Hawaii. Thanks to the We Promise Foundation®, Brian, who was diagnosed with lymphoma, and his family were able to spend a week in paradise. Although many people visit Hawaii to relax, Brian and his brothers wasted no time exploring the island, surfing, hiking, snorkeling, visiting the zoo, Pearl Harbor and of course hanging out on the beautiful beaches of Waikiki. Brian said his favorite part of the trip was waking up every morning knowing that his only care in the world was which wave to catch while surfing or what kind of tropical fish he would see while snorkeling, “We pretty much did everything you could do there!”
