Make-A-Wish grants boy’s wish

While the sky-high price of lumber may be holding builders back, it hasn’t stopped Make-A-Wish North Dakota from fulfilling the wish of six-year-old cancer survivor, David Alvey Jr., to have a treehouse built in the heart of his home’s backyard in Watford City.
“I think I love it. I’m going to put ev-wee-thing I like inside of there,” smiled Alvey.
When Alvey was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in the summer of 2018, it changed the family’s world forever. But one thing that didn’t change was Alvey’s dream of having a treehouse.
“For the last six months, every time I see him, he says - you’re going to build me a treehouse,” laughs Chris Kubal, Make-A-Wish North Dakota wish granter. “He’s been overjoyed for a long time.”
