Make-A-Wish: Kristina gets wish to go to the San Diego Zoo granted!
It's time for your dose of inspiration on this Monday morning. Today we're bringing you the story of 9-year-old Kristina McKnight, who wished to go to the San Diego Zoo.
The local elementary school student has been diagnosed with sickle cell disease and cerebral palsy.
Since birth, she has undergone blood transfusions every four weeks, and hasn't known a life without the critical ongoing treatments.
Kristina is passionate about animals of all kinds, so the San Diego Zoo was the perfect wish.
While at the zoo, Kristina was able to spend the day with her favorite animals and had her mom and dad by her side the whole time.
