Emily's wish to be a zookeeper

Emily is a sweet nine-year-old girl who suffers from refractory seizures. Her most cherished wish was to be a zookeeper for a day. Emily loves animals and is concerned about animal welfare. She did a science project at school about endangered animals. Emily also enjoys riding horses and attends pet care camps.

With the help of Make-Wish Toronto & Central Ontario and the generosity of the Toronto Zoo, Toronto Ritz Carlton, Medieval Times & Ripley’s Aquarium, Emily’s magical wish came true! Emily and her family spent an amazing four days in Toronto where they received VIP treatment.

On the big day, Emily was picked up by a stretch limo and taken to the Toronto Zoo for a behind the scenes tour. While in Toronto, Emily enjoyed a VIP tour of the Ripley’s Aquarium, where she fed the stingrays and interacted with the sharks. Emily and her family had a behind the scenes tour of Odyssey and a special dinner show at Medieval Times. Emily and her family had an absolutely magical time and the family is very grateful!
