Volunteers Build Dream Treehouse For Boy Who Is Terminally Ill

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.
