Greyson's Hawaii Wish Trip

Greyson enjoying Hawaii

“ It was perfect...it meant everything to us. ”


- Brittany, Greyson's mom

Greyson and his family touched down in Honolulu in November 2015. Seven-years-old at the time, his biggest wish was to visit Hawaii and go to the beach.

Greyson had learned a few weeks earlier that the Hoffman family was granting his wish. After opening gifts with everything he needed, including entertainment for the long plane ride, the perfect outfits for Hawaii, new toys, and a huge backpack to take with him, all he had to do was wait.

At the resort, Greyson and his family enjoyed the beautiful lagoon beaches and his favorite water slide. “Greyson could have stayed on that stunning lagoon beach for every second of the trip. He probably went down the small water slide in that area over 100 times,” said his mom, Brittany. “We would try to pull him out and he would say ‘no, no!’”

Greyson was diagnosed at age 7 with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, a lifelong, incurable disease.

 “We sometimes feel like all we do is fight TSC, but for just this one week, we got to forget about it and enjoy each other as a family,” said Brittany. “Being able to take the trip of a lifetime to a place like Hawaii is something we will always cherish.”

We sometimes feel like all we do is fight TSC, but for just this one week, we got to forget about it and enjoy each other as a family. ”
