CLEVELAND – Peyton McCarthy is only 4, but he’s battling several life-altering diseases at his young age.

Peyton, who is a patient at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital, has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, epilepsy, lung disease, brain damage and heart disease.

Peyton’s wish was to have a heated pool so he could spend time with his brother and two sisters. The warm water will help with his pain, brain damage and overall circulation in heart.

Pizza was donated from CRUST and Super Heroes from Super Heroes came by too!

The wish was made possible with donations from Mater Dei Academy, The Great Escape, AKA Electric, Flats East Bank, Nordonia Lower School, the Leonard Family, Willoughby South High School Volleyball Team, and 1n3 LLC Event Management.

A Special Wish Foundation Cleveland Chapter grants wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses between birth and age 20. There are currently wish children at the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital, University Hospitals Rainbows Babies and Children’s Hospital and The Ronald McDonald House.
