Dorchester Star - - Regional -

DEN­TON — Den­ton busi­ness Sparkle Pools Inc. as­sisted in grant­ing lo­cal boy’s wish to have a pool af­ter he was di­ag­nosed with leukemia.

When six-year old Max of Cam­bridge found out that he would be re­ceiv­ing a wish from Make-a-Wish 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.

Sparkle Pools wants to thank Tow­ers Con­crete and Water­boy Pool Water Ser­vice for their do­na­tions and par­tic­i­pa­tion 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.
