Matthew's Wish

Eleven-year-old Matthew Holmes of Russell beams as his wish to travel to Hawaii is revealed during the Orléans Wishes Committee's HaiRaiser fundraiser at Place d'Orléans on April 11. Matthew's leukemia is now in remission, but his long road to recovery continues, following three transplants and rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. He and his brother, mom and dad will spend 10 days next month in Hawaii snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, going on a helicopter ride, surfing and swimming with dolphins.
