Two years ago, at the age of 31 and with 2 young kids, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Before I started the surgery, treatment, and chemo my husband said we’d take an after cancer vacation when all of this was over. I could choose anywhere. It gave me something to look forward to. Even with insurance, our medical bills were super expensive. We used our AAdvantage credit card to pay for medical bills in order to save up our advantage miles. Because of this, we were able to get 4 FREE Airline Tickets to Maui! I guess there was one advantage to having breast cancer.
Post Breast Cancer Family Trip to Hawaii
Because breast cancer was something that affected our whole family, the kids (ages 5 and 3 now) went on the post-cancer Hawaii vacation too. My brother and his wife also met us there for some of the time.
Cancer Survivor Family Trip to Maui after Cancer
Family Vacation in Wailea, Hawaii after Cancer
We spent five nights in a condo in Wailea. If you are ever looking for a condo in Wailea, I highly recommend the VRBO 1022 listing of the 3 bed/2 bath Grand Champions, Wailea, South Maui, Maui, Hawaii.
After CancerFamily Vacation in Ka’anipali
The other four nights were spent at the Westin Hotel in Ka’anipali. This was also a very nice place. We had a beautiful room overlooking the ocean.
Our family spent a lot of time on the beach, but we also went to Haleakala summit at an altitude of 10,000 ft. We loved the little town of Lahaina as well.
Here are a few more pictures of our family trip to Maui.
