Dorchester Star - - Regional -

DEN­TON — Den­ton busi­ness Water­boy Pool Wa­ter Ser vice and Tow­ers Con­crete teamed up to build­ing a pool for a Cam­bridge boy di­ag­nosed with leukemia.

When six-year-old Max of Cam­bridge found out that he would be re­ceiv­ing a wish from Make-AWish Mid-At­lantic, he wished to have a swim­ming pool be­cause he and his brother love to swim.

Max was ex­cited to get an above­ground pool be­cause he loves be­ing out­side and can en­joy the pool for years to come.

Tow­ers Con­crete and Water­boy Pool Wa­ter Ser­vice made do­na­tions and par­tic­i­pated in mak­ing Max’s wish for an above-ground pool be­come a re­al­ity.

“Never in my life have I been in­volved in any­thing as re­ward­ing as mak­ing Max’s wish come true,” said Vin­nie Arn­wine of Sparkle Pools. “I will never for­get the feel­ing of joy and ex­cite­ment ex­pe­ri­enced by Max and his fam­ily. It is amaz­ing what Make-A-Wish is able to do for these kids. ”

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of chil­dren with life-threat­en­ing med­i­cal con­di­tions to en­rich the hu­man ex­pe­ri­ence with hope, strength and joy. Make-A-Wish Mid-At­lantic serves chil­dren who re­side in cen­tral and south­ern Delaware, Wash­ing­ton, D.C., Mary­land and north­ern Vir­ginia.

Founded in 1983, the Mid-At­lantic chap­ter has granted more than 8,500 wishes in the Mid-At­lantic re­gion since its in­cep­tion. Wish kids face any num­ber of life-threat­en­ing med­i­cal con­di­tions such as cancer, pe­di­atric AIDS, Spinal Mus­cu­lar Atro­phy, Duch­ene’s mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy, kid­ney and heart dis­ease.

This year alone, 840 lo­cal chil­dren are ex­pected to be di­ag­nosed with a life-threat­en­ing med­i­cal con­di­tion. How­ever, for ev­ery wish granted, at least two more lo­cal chil­dren are wait­ing.

The com­mu­nity has the op­por­tu­nity to make an im­pact today by help­ing Make-A-Wish to reach hun­dreds of kids whose wishes would go other wise unan­swered this year. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.midat­lantic.wish.org.
