Madera Co girl has wish granted

Saturday, July 07, 2012

A young North Valley girl has a new playset to call her own after getting her wish granted by the Make A Wish Foundation.

Six year old Deztiny has a brain tumor and today she watched as Madera County firefighters helped build her play-set in the back of her Madera home.

Deztiny's wish was sponsored by United Healthcare but volunteers with the Make A Wish Foundation knew they'd need some muscle to actually build it.

When dozens of people showed up Saturday morning, Deztiny's mother couldn't have been more grateful.

"It was very heartwarming to see them drive up and seeing everybody walking out. We couldn't believe it. We were in awe when it happened," Cecila Belmontes, Deztiny's mother, said

Volunteers spent all morning putting the playset together.

Her mother says Deztiny loves playing outside so she's sure it will get a lot of use.
