Firefighters Create A Dream Bedroom For This Sick Little Boy – TEARS!

Meet John. An inspiration and a fighter. I encourage you to take a moment and watch his story in the video clip below.  It’ll warm your heart and your day as you see how this talented designer and founder of The Corner Kingdom Project makes John’s dreams come true.

Along with so many others who gave of their time, skill and/or materials, John’s dream of becoming a firefighter has come true – if only in his bedroom and his imagination.

“John John” is an energetic 5-year-old who wants to be a firefighter when he grows up. John was diagnosed with Stage 4 anaplastic ganglioglioma in 2013. This is an aggressive, malignant tumor in his brain. Last year, the doctors told his parents he had three to nine months to live. But John John is a fighter. He fights fires AND cancer!

On the weekend of March 28th, 2015, Corner Kingdom united with Evesham Fire Rescue and BELFOR Restoration to build John’s Dream Firefighter room. We raised almost $11,000 and over 50 volunteers showed up to make this project a huge success!

Special thanks to all the sponsors who made it possible.
