    • I wish to go on an African Safari
  • I wish to go

At 7-years-old, animal-lover Caden experienced a rare, malignant brain tumor. When his wish granters met with him to find out his one true wish, they found their task as a simple one. CadenHis love for animals, especially cheetahs, is what inspired his wish: to go on an African safari and to see a cheetah.

On his trip, Caden wanted to discover “how fast a cheetah really runs” for himself, and in addition get to see other animals such as lions and hyenas. Accompanied by his supportive mother and father, the family was about to experience the wild side of Africa! On their three different safari experiences, Caden was able to explore savannahs and mountains by not only horseback but also elephant-back! He interacted with two hawks and a vulture, and of course, was introduced to his first real-life cheetah. Not only did he get the opportunity to greet the cheetah as he arrived, he also got a lick on his hand to say good-bye!

“Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover how grateful we are for what you’ve given us!” Caden’s mother shared. Without your help, granting wishes like Caden’s wouldn’t be possible!
