Louis' wish brings him comfort and joy

Louis loves spending time in his backyard, surrounded by beautiful trees and chirping birds. Because of his neurological disorder, Louis couldn’t stay outside for a very long time in the warmer months because he can't move well on his own and is unable to swat away bugs. Louis' medical condition has limited his time outdoors and he wished for a safe space to enjoy time outside.

His new screened-in outdoor pavilion was furnished for his needs with a cozy suspended hammock and an outdoor bed where he can rest comfortably. When his parents placed him on his hammock, Louis couldn't stop smiling - it was clear that he was thrilled that his wish had come true.

“Louis loves feeling the wind on his face and listening to the birds singing, but there were so many mosquitoes on him that it was impossible to stay outside, says Louis' mother. With the pavilion, Louis will finally be able to enjoy being outside in the spring, summer and fall, nap outdoors and breathe in the fresh air.”

When a wish is granted, it does much more than bring joy to a child’s heart. For kids like Louis, who are faced with critical illnesses, a wish-come-true provides them with strength to battle through darkness and gives them hope for healthier, happier days ahead.
