Avrey's Wish

Avery is 15 years old and lives with a progressive muscle disease. She has an extraordinary love for the water and sea life so when asked what her one true wish would be, Avery decided she wanted to go scuba diving. 

Avery is confined to a wheelchair but loves the water and was completing her scuba diving certification at home. Her wish was to go to Hawaii, and what better place to do her final open water certification dives than on her wish trip?

On one of her dives, she was surrounded by dozens of wild dolphins and got a rare view of a nearby humpback whale! Even the diving staff were amazed, as this is very rare! Avery's mom was so thankful as "Avery was able to do something that many people said she would never be able to do."
