Jensen, a cheerful 7-year old from Wake County who has a cardiac condition, yearned for an opportunity to visit the San Diego Zoo, one of the world’s most spectacular animal parks. On April 12, his wish was granted by Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina, along with the fundraising efforts of Apex Friendship High School through the Kids for Wish Kids program. Prior to the wish reveal ceremony, Jensen received a private tour of the Duke Lemur Center in Durham.
