Sparkle Pools Inc. assists in granting Cambridge boy’s wish for a pool
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.
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 ever y 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 otherwise unanswered this year. For more information, visit www.midatlantic.wish.org.
