COBLESKILL, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Make-A-Wish Northeast New York granted its first wish since the start of the coronavirus pandemic to a Cobleskill teen.
Cheyenne Lindsey spent the day Wednesday at the Adirondack Animal Land in Vails Mills as well as having lunch and shopping with her mom, sister and a family friend while a new above-ground swimming pool was being installed in her backyard.
“I knew it!” she squealed, according to Make-A-Wish, when she saw her brand new pool.
Family members, a DJ and confetti cannons were on-hand to celebrate with the teen.
“It will be something to do together – family time,” her mom Amber Slate said. “Hopefully, it will also be therapy. It will be good for her legs.”
The 15-year-old has cerebral palsy and a nervous system disorder.
This was the first wish granted by Make-A-Wish Northeast New York since mid-March and the beginning of the pandemic.
