"To help a child who has been through more than most of us ever have, to get a cancer diagnosis and a prosthetic leg. We are here today to bring his dream to life," said Anna Dey, AnyTime Fitness Concord, who helps raise money for A Special Wish, Cleveland Chapter. At four-years-old, Liam Waldron was diagnosed with an aggressive bone cancer.
From the time Liam was just three-years-old he was fascinated with cars. "Cars are a passion for me," said Liam Waldron.
Now, at age eight, he is a wish child for A Special Wish Foundation Cleveland Chapter. His wish was to have his basement transformed into a car dealership. There are tire tables, tool boxes, a lounge area and more.
The team of volunteers turned the basement into Autos Unlimited. Every detail in place to mimic a real car showroom. Eileen Lane, Executive Director A Special Wish Foundation Cleveland, said they brought together different design elements to make the basement look like a showroom.
A dream come true for a little boy who has been through a lot. "It's amazing all of these people would take time off from work and away from their families just to be here. That inspires me," said Liam.
