Hawaii Hospice patient Paula Samson and her 6-year-old grandson recently suited up paniolo style for a private, guided horseback ride at Kualoa Ranch. An experienced rider who once cared for pa'u horses, Samson had this ride on her bucket list since being diagnosed with hypopharyngeal cancer. The ranch staff ably fulfilled her wish and made the day truly special, according to Hospice Hawaii's Tori Abe. Photo from Becker Communications.
