Ten-year-old Susanna is creative, smart and the world’s number one animal-lover. Susanna cares so much for animals that she became the only vegetarian in her family! Although Susanna’s leukemia diagnosis slowed down her pursuit of some of her favorite activities, she continued to harbor a career goal of eventually becoming a veterinarian.
When Susanna found out that she would receive a wish from Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic, it was no surprise what this avid animal enthusiast chose. To ensure that she would be getting hands-on with animals rather than just a backstage look, Susanna wished to be a zoo keeper for a day! She was excited to take care of the giraffes, elephants, reptiles and small animals. During Susanna’s day as a zoo keeper, she was able to live out her dream of caring for animals after her tough battle with cancer.
