Corrigan 5th Grader Gets Dream Vacation

We all have a dream vacation we wish we could take some day. Well, a Corrigan boy got his dream vacation a few months ago. Travis Bell Jr., a fifth grader at Corrigan-Camden Elementary School, always wished he could go to Hawaii.  His wish has come true, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Corrigan Times reports Travis was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia two years ago, and while he is now in remission, his chemotherapy will continue for another two years.  He’s not out of the woods yet.

His parents , Travis and Rebecca Bell, say he has always wanted to go to Hawaii, so his name and story were referred to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, which was created just for that purpose.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation’s website says its mission is to enrich the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions by doing whatever is necessary to make their wishes come true.

They made Travis Junior’s wish come true in June, when the Bell family got an all expense paid trip to Hawaii. The editor of the Corrigan Times says little Travis is one of the most courageous kids she’s ever met, and this dream vacation couldn’t have happened to a more deserving family.
