Zachary Meets the Cast of the Lion King

July 10, 2017

Zachary, living with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, was recently granted a wish to see Lion King on Broadway and received a backstage tour and met many of the actors after the show.  “Everyone was so nice and they told us a lot about the show and also their backgrounds and how they got to be on Broadway. As we left, our guide gave me and my sister playbills that had been signed by the entire cast.  It was awesome! I felt so special because the backstage tour was private and just for us. They made an announcement that I was there and any cast members that could should come to meet us. I couldn’t believe how many actors came to meet us, and they all knew my name!” Zachary’s mom, Elise, nominated him for the wish: “Our entire family cannot thank you enough for this incredible experience!  The four of us had a fantastic time and it was such a treat for us to see the show, have a private backstage tour, and get away for a day/night and just enjoy! You spoiled us rotten and we loved every minute of it! The experience rejuvenated our entire family. It was such a great break for us and we had so much fun! Zach “would like to thank Do It For The Love for one of the best experiences of my life. It  gave me new energy!  I feel so happy and lucky to be me!”
