Child with kidney cancer surprised with playground

Volunteers with two organizations gathered on Saturday to build a playground as a surprise to an almost 2-year-old boy with kidney cancer. Mickey Truck Bodies and Roc Solid Foundation teamed up to build a new swing set in Luca’s backyard as a way to keep him smiling as he goes through his treatments. The High Point family found that their son had a Wilms tumor when his doctor felt a lump during a normal checkup. Then they discovered the result at Brenner Children’s Hospital. Roc Solid Foundation is a non-profit organization that “raises hope for children fighting cancer”. They are best known for donating ready-made bags to hospitals that are filled with things that people may need when they come for unexpected hospital visits. They also build playsets for children undergoing treatment. The group teamed up with local nonprofit Mickey Truck Bodies to build Luca’s playset when he wasn’t home and surprised him. Tears flowed as Luca’s smile widened and he climbed all over his new open-air retreat, forgetting for a moment about the trials ahead and becoming a child again. .
