Ten year-old Mindy was diagnosed with metastasized osteosarcoma as a child, and always dreamed of being able to swim with dolphins. When she was referred to Make-A-Wish® in 2010, there was no hesitation in selecting Discovery Cove in Orlando, Florida for her special wish. Discovery Cove provided the perfect setting for Mindy, who loves all animals, especially dolphins. Mindy traveled with her parents to Orlando and they were able to go to Discovery Cove as well as The Magic Kingdom and Sea World. Mindy enjoyed learning about dolphins at Sea World before experiencing her own personal encounter with them at Discovery Cove. She also got the opportunity to swim with stingrays and feed the tropical birds in Discovery Cove’s free-flight aviary. Mindy’s family created wonderful memories on this trip, and the joy that Mindy felt can be seen on her face in every photo they took.
