A Pez filled birthday wish granted

Thursday, December 04, 2008

The birthday wishes of a child, living with a life-threatening condition, were answered tonight in Ambler, Pennsylvania.

The Gwynedd-Mercy College men's soccer team adopted 9-year-old Luke Ronco back in August.

Luke has been battling a brain tumor for the past six years.

A few weeks ago, doctors discovered his tumor was growing again.

To lift his spirits, the team decided to throw him a party, complete with Luke's favorite collectable - Pez.

Word got around about Luke's hobby and folks from around the region sent hundreds of Pez dispensers, candy, and other goodies.

Luke turns 10 next week.

He says this is the best birthday he's ever had.
