It’s not every day we are given a chance to make someone’s dreams come true, but on the 10th September 2013 Tygerberg Animal Hospital was given that opportunity. Together with the Reach for a dream foundation, TAH received the honour of spending the day with an inspirational little girl by the name of Jordynn.
Jordynn is ten-years-old and lives in Port Elizabeth. She is currently being treated at the Red Cross Hospital in Cape Town for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. Jordynn is a big animal lover and dreams of one day becoming a professional veterinarian.
The Reach for a Dream Foundation contacted Tygerberg Animal Hospital in the hopes of making Jordynn’s dreams a reality. We were more than happy as well as honoured to be a part of this special moment in Jordynn’s life.
Jordynn and her Mother Rochelle spent the day at our TAH Durbanville branch with Dr Michelle Adam. Dr Adam did a tour around the hospital explaining where certain procedures are done and then gave a demonstration of what an everyday veterinary check-up entails. Jordynn was able to participate during the check up and had the opportunity to listen to a dog’s heartbeat.

After spending some time at Tygerberg Animal Hospital with all the fluffy inpatients, Jordynn has said she is even more inspired to one day studying to become a veterinarian. There is no doubt in anyone’s mind when looking into Jordynn’s eyes, that with all her strength, determination and passion for animals, that her dream won’t come true.
Thank you to Jordynn, Rochelle and the Reach for a Dream team, for giving Tygerberg Animal Hospital this opportunity to make someone’s dream come true. Meeting Jordynn was inspirational and a pleasure. We wish Jordynn well in her journey ahead and look forward to hearing from her soon.
