PAWTUCKET R.I. (January 2020): Jamel loves swimming and is captivated by his aquarium.
Watching his fish relaxes him, and he wants to learn as much as he can about his treasured aquatic world. In addition to wanting more fish and aquarium accessories, Jamel has always dreamed about having a pool in his own backyard. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, will be sending this aquarium lover to Something Fishy Aquarium Service in Warwick, for a personalized educational session with their marine biologist.
Jamel will learn all about various species of fish and how best to care for the ones he has at home. Kids Wish Network will also gift him a mini shopping spree so he can pick out more fish friends and supplies, in addition to purchasing him a generous Amazon gift card to shop for an above ground pool.
Jamel has Chiari malformation, a condition in which brain tissue extends into the spinal canal. He underwent corrective brain surgery last year. “Jamel’s new pool and enhanced aquarium will bring him ongoing happiness,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
