Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, Parker's wish to be a zookeeper came true!

Seven-year-old wish kid Parker has always been wild about animals. When Parker was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, his stuffed animals kept him company during long hours of doctor appointments and treatments. He knew without a doubt that for his wish, he wanted to become a zookeeper.

On the day of his wish, a limo took Parker and his family to his first day on the job, where he received his official zookeeper uniform and name badge. He spent the afternoon touring the zoo, going behind the scenes of the habitats and feeding and taking care of the animals, just like he’d hoped.

After the wish, Parker’s mom said that one of the scariest parts of Parker’s treatments was watching his personality disappear a little bit. It was clear after a day being a zookeeper, Parker is back to his outgoing, excited, smiling self.

This year, we will grant over 300 wishes to kids like Parker. Thank you for making it possible.
