Media Advisory - Wish comes true for 7 year old Plum Coulee boy



    WINNIPEG, Sept. 5 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:     7 year old Jaden Friesen from Plum Coulee will be receiving his
              wish - a custom built Firehouse playhouse and swing set. Jade,
              who has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, chose a firehouse because
              he loves anything and everything to do with firefighters and he
              wants to be just like his dad who is a volunteer firefighter.
              Jaden's wish is coming true thanks to The Children's Wish
              Foundation and the generosity of the Plum Coulee Volunteer Fire
              Department, Winkler Police, Lilliput and The Home Depot.
