Alisa is an 18-year-old senior at Colby High School in Colby Kansas. She has been diagnosed with a Glioblastoma stage-4 brain cancer. Her latest prognosis was not as hopeful as family and friends would have liked. Alisa has been placed on hospice care. She has many things she would like to still accomplish in life. Alisa has put together a "bucket list." which is one of the reasons for this inspirational flight set to occur on April 13th, 2014. Alisa has a wondrous magic about her with a beautiful soul and a quick smile, as well as a contagious laugh and warmth in her heart that is undeniable.

Joe Exotic, Misty Sunshine of Capacity To Care along and pilot Emil Bragdon owner of the Ft Worth Texas based aircraft that is making this flight possible are all delighted to be of assistance to this beautiful soul, Alisa. The flight on April 13th will mark one more accomplishment for Alisa with regard to her “bucket list.” Joe Exotic was quoted as saying:

“Everyone is delighted to make this event possible and we are all looking forward to seeing Alisa’s face light up with joy when she meets her new friend, a cuddly baby lion.”
