Jenks girl heads to Hawaii thanks to Make-A-Wish

JENKS, Okla. — Reme Teal, a 13-year-old girl from Jenks, is headed to Hawaii after battling cancer which is now in remission.

She is able to go to Hawaii because of the Make-a-Wish Foundation and a lot of community support.

Jenks High School students, inspired by Teal and three other Make a Wish kids, have raised more than $18,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Teal said she really appreciates all of the support the Jenks community has shown. She also said she’s looking forward to her upcoming trip. She loves swimming and said she wants to go snorkeling in Hawaii.
