LOWER SACKVILLE, NS, Nov. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - rcs construction will help build a backyard playground for a wish child who, due to his illness, cannot play with other children at the local playground.
Three-year-old Brayden's wish is to have his own playground to play freely in his backyard. He was diagnosed with SCID – an immune deficiency, which makes it harder for Brayden to be around other children. When another child enters a playground, Brayden has to leave and be scrubbed down in order to avoid getting sick. "It's finally a safe place for Brayden to have fun and play like a healthy child. We are so grateful for such an amazing gift," said Brayden's mom, Megan Vaters.
rcs construction has offered to help build Brayden's playground and help his dream come true. "rcs is proud to assist The Children's Wish Foundation in granting this wish. We are happy to lend a hand and believe it is important to give back to the communities in which we operate." said Doug Doucet, President of rcs construction.
The Children's Wish Foundation and rcs construction are inviting the media on Wednesday, November 5th, to the family's home as rcs construction builds Brayden's playground.
