Alistair's Summertime Soiree!

Alistair's Summertime Soiree!

“ This is something Alistair will have and be able to enjoy for the rest of his life. ”

- Becky, Alistar's Mom

Imagine. A perfect summer dream setting. What do you see?

Three-year old Alistair imagined a donut floaty; water-gun shoot-outs; pineapple drinks and an outdoor pool in the backyard. And that is exactly what he got and more when his wish for his very own swimming pool, was granted by Make-A-Wish Oklahoma.

Alistair Swimming Pool Wish

2016 was one of the hardest years in Alistair’s young life.  He was diagnosed with medulloblastoma and went through tough treatment for his illness.  Recently, the news for Alistair improved when he was declared in remission! And he has not slowed down since then.

On a hot July day, friends, family, the pool construction company from all over gathered to surprise Alistair with his wish come true. Surrounded by his new pool, he spent the day opening presents, playing with pool toys and giving everyone a good soaking from his brand new water gun!

It was an incredible, fun-filled day for everyone in attendance; and a dream-come-true for Alistair.  He and his family were able to forget about being sick and poked for medical treatment and the stress his illness has had on his family.  For Alistair, his family and community his swimming pool wish is one that will be enjoyed today and for many more days and years to come.

Many thanks to our friends at Meske Construction, Leisure Time Pools, and ACE Electric for helping to make Alistair’s wish for his very own swimming pool, come true!
