A family from Guam came to Hawaii seeking medical treatment for their blind son.

They found life in Hawaii tough, but they are working hard and are optimistic.

But, they need your help this holiday season.

Edleen's family has come far. From Guam to transitional housing to renting a home of their own.

Son, Carlo, attends the Hawaii School for the Deaf and the Blind.

Mom takes care of Carlo and the other kids while Dad works as a detailer at an auto group.

They just barely make their bills.

The family would love a holiday meal.

Clothing would be appreciated: boys small and medium, girls medium and large, mens medium and large and womens large.

She'd love Tonka toys for the boys and anything Justin Beiber for her daughter.

Dad would like athletic shoes and Mom wants a purse.
