Despite being diagnosed with leukemia, Reed is a typical 17-year-old boy who loves hanging out with friends and exploring the outdoors, especially hiking, fishing and being around animals. When Make-A-Wish Central & Western North Carolina wish volunteers first met Reed, they were impressed with how much research he had done while considering his one true wish: to go on a safari in Africa.
While in Africa, Reed and his family spent time riding cable cars during their tour of Cape Town, exploring the wildlife in the peninsula, and driving through the game reserve in Mossel Bay. He saw lions, birds and monkeys in the Tsitsikamma National Park, an ostrich farm, and explored caves near the wildlife ranch in Oudtshoorn. 🚡🐒🦁
After returning from the trip, Reed’s mom said, “Trying to get used to ‘normal’ life again after living in a dream is going to be difficult. It was truly an unforgettable trip for everyone involved." Learn more about #TripsThatTransform at a.wish.org/tripsthattransform.
