It was a wet and rainy day, but that didn’t stop Nancy and her loving family from enjoying a trip to the Henry Doorly Zoo. Her adventure had been planned for a month, and everyone was excited to go, rain or shine!

Nancy and ten family members were excited to spend a day exploring one of the greatest zoo’s in the US. From the aquarium to the desert dome to the rainforest, everyone observed the exotic animals from all over the world. All ages, both young and old, loved seeing the playful monkeys, stealthy sharks and fluffy rabbits. The zoo is a place to explore and imagine—and Nancy and her family did just that.

Nancy hadn’t gone out with her family for a long time. Due to her health, transportation and logistics of planning an outing were difficult. But after receiving the nomination, Dreamweaver knew Nancy was a deserving woman and her family was thrilled.

After their morning at the zoo, the family came back to Maple Crest to enjoy lunch from Nancy’s favorite restaurant—Pizza Hut! Dreamweaver volunteers set up the room with flowers and balloons to make her feel absolutely special. Her family gathered around and enjoyed a meal, took photos, and talked about their fun outing to the zoo.

Thank you to Midwest Medical, Henry Doorly Zoo, and Pizza Hut for making Nancy’s Dream a reality!
