#GoodNews: Volunteers Build Dream Treehouse For Terminally Ill Boy

An eight-year-old North Carolina boy with a terminal illness has been given the custom treehouse of his dreams.

Lorenzo Andrade-Cruz has ALD (Adrenoleukodystrophy), a rare genetic disorder that affects the brain, and he’s already lost two brothers to it.

So when Jamie's Dream Team,a nonprofit that works to lift the spirits of people who are terminally ill or seriously injured, heard he wanted a treehouse, they got to work to make it happen.

Lorenzo wanted a place of his own to play and volunteers from two states started building to create it.

His treehouse has a Spider-Man theme and is decked out with a bunk bed, table and chairs, iPads, and an Xbox. Thanks to Jamie’s Dream Team, he got his wish and has this spot to make memories.
