Haley, 9, of Sioux Falls, and her family had never been on vacation before. So when she wished to swim with dolphins and see an ocean, she and her family had a lot to look forward to.
Haley, who faces a Germ Cell Tumor, left Sioux Falls for Discovery Cove
in Orlando, FL, in early August. While there, her wish of swimming with dolphins came true and she also had the opportunity to snorkel among different kinds of fish and sting rays.
“When she was in the hospital we would talk about when she could go swim with a dolphin,” Haley’s mom Lisa said. “I think in her mind it was make believe, but when we finally went, she had the time of her life. You can tell by her smile in the pictures.”
They also spent time at Disney’s Hollywood Studio. At Aquatica, Sea World’s water park, she enjoyed the huge water slides and the wave pool.
“As a mom, I will remember what we went through, but to Haley her wish made everything go away, so thank you so much,” Lisa said.
