Zachary visits the wild coast of Australia

Zachary and Koala

“ Thank you for making my wish come true! ”

While Zachary, age 11, was undergoing chemotherapy this spring for his life-threatening medical condition, he looked forward to seeing exotic animals and the wild coast of Australia. A place he had studied in geography class. And now a place where his dream came true.

“Australia has always fascinated me,” Zachary said.  “Especially the animals:  they’re cool!  They’re unlike any other animals in the world,” he added. And holding a koala?  “Awesome!”  From feeding kangaroos to seeing wild parrots at the national park, Zachary and his family enjoyed their stay in Caloundra, Queensland, home of the world-famous Australia Zoo.

“I want to say thank you very much for sending me there,” says Zachary. “It was an amazing opportunity.  I loved it!!!”
