New Place to Play

Elijah climbing up his new play set

“ A wish come true helps a child feel stronger and more energetic. ”

Elijah is granted his wish for a new play set

Nothing makes three-year-old Elijah happier than playing outside.  He enjoys being able to swim, swing and slide, just like other kids his age, not thinking about doctor appointments and dealing with cystic fibrosis.  To bring even more happiness to this young child's life, Make-A-Wish granted his wish for his very own play set.

Elijah was speechless when he saw his play set for the first time.  He immediately hopped on one of the swings with a big smile on his face.  He couldn't wait to try out the climbing wall, slide and sandbox, too.  Along with his play set, Elijah also received a sand pail and shovel, bubbles, a ball, and a toy bulldozer.  

Now, Elijah doesn't have to venture beyond his own backyard for fun adventures.  He spends hours swinging away on his new play set without a care in the world.  Elijah and his family are very grateful that he had the opportunity to have a wish granted.

  • Elijah's new place to play

Elijah never wants to come in from outside now. It will be a great help for Elijah with lung and personal development. ”
