“ Giraffes, panda bears, and owls! Oh my! ”

Macie's experience among her favorite animals was a relief from the struggle of recovery.

Macie, age 4, has two sisters and loves animals.  When not watching her favorite TV show, Sesame Street, or playing with her Elmo toys, Macie enjoys swimming and playing outside with her friends.  Yet it was Macie’s love of animals that inspired her wish to visit the zoo.  

Macie is recovering from Dermatomyositis, and looked forward to an experience that would be a relief from the everyday. She couldn't stop smiling as she interacted with giraffes, panda bears, and even owls! Macie’s wish experience included a VIP tour of the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, where she was even able to help feed the animals!
