To us there is absolutely nothing more important in this world than helping others. We recently had the honor and great privilege of donating our services to help The Make-A-Wish foundation make an amazing young man’s wish of having his own batting cage come true
We are usually the first step in a process. Our tree removal crews have cut trees down for almost every reason known to man. Sometimes we remove trees to start a new landscape for a client. Sometimes we clear trees to make way for new home additions or garages. We even cut them down for no reason at all when asked to. But we have never cut down trees to grant a wish. That is why we were so excited when we got the call from Make-a-wish. All week leading up to the project we were as excited as a kid right before Christmas. Probably not as excited as Liam though. He is an amazing kid with tons of talent. He is a modern day Johnny Bench or Yogi Berra.
The only thing that surpasses Liam’s love for baseball is his awesomeness and courage. This kid is an amazingly awesome individual that has dealt with some tough things over the past year and a half. In June of 2014 he was diagnosed with Stage IIIB Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of the body’s immune system. Treatments for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma patients are challenging, and for the better part of a year, Liam has undergone rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, leaving him immunocompromised. Baseball has helped him through these tough times. He says it takes his mind off of everything else.
During rounds of intense treatment Liam is unable to travel and play the game that he loves so dearly. Knowing this, the amazing people at Make-A-Wish put a plan in motion to get him a batting cage. This Batting cage will be there for Liam when he can’t travel. He can go just a few steps outside his back door and get his mind off of everything but baseball.
Liam and his family are truly amazing people and could use all of the support they can get. PLEASE take a minute to follow these links and learn how you can help.
