AUSTIN, Texas – Hayden Trigg, 7, was diagnosed with both spina bifida and cerebral palsy at an early age.

Since he uses a wheelchair, it made it difficult to play with his friends and his siblings.

According to ABC News, Make-A-Wish Foundation and a local contractor teamed up to make Hayden a wheelchair-accessible tree house right in his own backyard.
