Jack is a 10 year old boy from North Carolina currently a patient fighting relapsed lymphoma for the second time at CHKD. He dreams of growing up to be a veterinarian. Because he had never been, Jack's wish was to visit Washington DC and go to the National Zoo. The Wes Strong Foundation provided Jack with a 4 day/3 night stay at the Grand Hyatt in the heart of DC with VIP status where he was treated like a celebrity. He was also able to go on a behind the scenes, up close and personal tour of the zoo in which he was able to interact with animals like an elephant, cheetah, anteater, and more! We also provided financial support for any additional expenses they may have such as souvenirs, food, gas, etc. Jack's mom said many memories were made that they will never forget.
