The Make-A-Wish foundation granted a Pittsford boy his most heartfelt wish. They did it with the help of some of 3-year old Craig Winter's hometown heroes.
It's a wish that can last a lifetime and its being built from the ground up.
"To be able to ask a little kid what's the one wish you can have and help to be able to make that come true and see their face when it happens, it's just a feeling you can't describe," said Barbie Ruffell, Make-A-Wish volunteer.
Volunteers spent much of Saturday morning constructing this two-story structure for Craig Winter. Having his very own firehouse was a wish he had given after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
"He's doing really well right now and for the most part we focus on the positive days we have with him right now and for the most part he feels really great," said Kim Winter, Craig's mother.
On Saturday, the foundation went above and beyond for Craig to answer the call. They even had the assistance of the Pittsford Volunteer Fire Department. The department came to help Craig move in to his new backyard fire house.
"We're all here for him of course and we love the firehouse they built for him. It looks fantastic," said Chris Howk, Pittsford Fire Chief.
Craig is just one of 70 local children who face life threatening medical conditions whose wish was granted by the foundation this year.
"These families are going through the most difficult challenges and just to bring them some hope, strength and joy to their lives," said Kate McGowan, Make-A-Wish Media Relations Manager.
"It's just amazing how generous these people are," said Tim Winter, Craig's father.
