Ozie goes to Hawaii

Wish kid Ozie glides through Hawaiian waters on the fins of a dolphin.

“ We are grateful and appreciative for everything. The trip was so healing for Ozie and the whole family. ”


- Heidi, Ozie’s mom

In late 2016, 8-year-old Ozie was diagnosed with leukemia. He was immediately admitted to receive lifesaving treatment.

The next few months would be filed with dialysis, steroid treatments and many other medications to keep him stable.

To keep him inspired to fight, Ozie found that being silly and constantly laughing helped him dream of his wish. His favorite thing do to is to take adventures, explore and to catch frogs, which is why he is excited to swim with dolphins and see sea slugs while on his wish in Hawaii.
