Here we are with dolphin Skinny. The girl is from a children’s hospital and wanted to experience swimming with a dolphin. When she wrote a letter to the foundation Do A Wish, they said she wasn’t ill enough yet… But with cystic fibrose you’re always kind of lucky when you feel good. When we called dolphin trainer Joyce, she said please come! For swimming it was to cold but we caught this moment of a brave kiss.
Skinny has a famous cousin in the US, dolphin Winter. She survived a critical injure and has a prosthetic tail now! She plays with children who have prosthetics as well. And swims with soldiers who came back injured from war.
They made a Hollywood movie about Winter. Have a look at this inspiring story:
And have a look at Bosnian girl Maya who came back from war and her meeting with Winter:
