I have a step daughter who is an amputee. I am going to send her this excellent article and encourage her to move to Hawaii.It seems, due to generous caring people, everyone can experience paradise on earth - just come to Hawaii!!

Thank You for enlightening us all on this good work.

Very inspiring article. Challenged me to have an attitude of "no excuses." With God all things are possible!

Terrific article and photos! This really shows the aloha spirit of the caring people of Hawaii. I've sent the link to a dozen friends on the mainland who have handicapped spouses, teens or children...now a vacation in paradise is a real possibility for them. Thanks Star-Bulletin for running uplifting stories like this one!

What an upbeat, positive story! I hope it gives hope and motivation to many who might never have considered they too can enjoy ocean activities. Thanks for this kind of feature.

Thanks for this story, Jean! How inspiring to see all these people challenging not only themselves, but the boundaries seeming logic and society have tried to place on them. Technology certainly has its blessings!
