East Texans make 6-year-old's wish come true

Posted by Ellen Krafve - email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A young East Texan got something to make his life a little better. Six-year-old Conner Wall is diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, which means his heart muscle is inflamed and doesn't work as well as it should.

Kids Wish Network and Home Depot teamed up to build Conner a play set in his backyard.

"Home Depot does a lot of team depot stuff like this all the time, but since this was a child, we had a lot of people at the store that wanted to get involved," said Deidra Richardson, the spokesperson for Home Depot. "Keep in mind, they don't get paid for being here today. This is all volunteer for their time."

We've set up a link to the Kids Wish Network. Just go to our home page and click on the Big Red Box. There, you'll find the link titled "Wish Kid".
