  • Ellie is an 88 year old superwoman. She started skiing when she was 33 years old and at the age of 82 had to give it up because of too many injuries. Ever since, her dream has been to get back on the slopes one last time. Luckily, our friends at Wish of a Lifetime heard Ellie's story and decided they'd help her achieve that goal. We were so lucky to have taken part in this adventure and want to thank our friends at Wish of a Lifetime a million times for inviting us along on this journey.

    My grandfather who is in his 80’s used to love to go sailing but his eyes went bad and now all he does is sleep and home. Everyday he asks to go sailing but he isn’t able to. If you guys are able to help him go sailing or be on a boat again, it would make his lifetime.

    This must've been the greatest video Yes theory has ever made!! Ellie has such a beautiful soul and she exudes positivity despite having a legitimate reason for not being able to get back to the slopes at 88. I wish you well, Grandma Ellie. Yes Theory, thank you for always giving us high quality and inspiring content on each video :)

    I cried from the first second this video started to even now as I write this. This was a hard video for me to watch. I lost my only two surviving grandparents within 14 months of each other. My grandfather passed away after a painful 7 month battle with pancreatic cancer in May of 2017. The summer before he passed, he was the healthiest man I knew and was out sailing on the lake and living his life to the fullest. In early July of this year, my grandmother passed away due to kidney failure, but a broken heart as well. Again, the summer before she passed, she was out on the lake slalom skiing. She still holds the record for being the oldest slalom skier on that lake. Both my grandparents were so lively and had so much joy and had a drive to live their lives to the fullest. It's hard to know that they are no longer on this planet, but I am glad to know that they are with the Lord and they are together again. My emotions are still very raw right now, but I you guys did a fantastic job on this video and I'm so glad Ellie got a chance to live her dream again! Keep doing what you're doing, Yes Theory. You inspire me.

    This is the best video I have ever seen. My grandma is back home in Honduras and she is losing her eyesight on the only eye she has left. I see her only during Christmas since I am an international student living in St. Louis Missouri. I have been trying to gather funds to take her to Miami and see her eye doctor and hopefully I'll be able to do it soon. You guys are an inspiration and I want to congratulate you for what yo do. I just started binge watching your videos last weekend and I am hooked. Keep on the great content!

    My grandma actually already had hers fulfilled last year but I wanted to share anyway. My grandmother fled Cuba in the 60's with her family and did not want to leave. She actually went missing a few days they were expected to leave but they found her and she came to the states. December of 2017 (a year before I post this) she was able to go home for the first time in 50 years. Her cousin had been going back and forth with his wife to restore an old theater in her home town, so they made arrangements for her to go and see the opening of it, and of course see home. Unfortunately the theater was unable to reopen but she will never forget going back home.
