Eight-year-old Jadyn Blanco, who’s been fighting a cancerous brain tumor, got the royal treatment from Zoo Miami on Labor Day weekend.

Despite the zoo still being closed due to the pandemic, little Jadyn got to see, feed and play with all sorts of animals.

To hear from Jadyn and Ron Magill you can watch our report.

Animal encounters are nothing compared to what Jadyn has already faced.

In January of 2019 doctors discovered she had cancer. Jadyn went through 6 weeks of radiation. She still gets regular checkups. And doctors are happy with her prognosis. October will mark one year since she completed her radiation. And Jadyn’s dream was to meet Mr. Magill.
