A Wish to be Zookeeper for a Day

Meet Amelia, who at only 4 years old, is battling Leukemia, but her love of animals helps her keep going! When she found out her wish was being granted, she discovered a newfound strength to continue her recovery. 10 out of 10 medical professionals reported that the wish experience improves a child's - and their own - emotional well-being! 

A wish to be whatever you could possibly imagine and wish kid Amelia wanted more than anything in the world to be a Zookeeper for a day! She shared this once in a life-time experience with her parents, grandparents and baby brother at Zoo Miami. Where she was greeted with open arms from the entire Zoo Staff! 

"The zoo went above and beyond and the memories we made will last us a lifetime." 
-Wish Mom, Carrie
