Terminal 3-year-old gets wish to play in the snow

Little Mason Williams, 3, wanted nothing more than to see some snow. His mother made it happen with the help of some volunteers and friends according to Yahoo News on Dec. 6.

Mason came into this world with hypoplastic left-heart syndrome and a chromosomal disorder that leaves him unable to speak. He needs surgery but his health is too poor to allow it.

His mom, Melodie wanted to make his wish to see snow come true before it was too late. However, there was no snow in Rowley Rigis, England where they live. Melodie turned to some local businesses to create Mason’s own winter wonderland by having 105 gallons of snow brought in as a surprise for her boy.

“I just had to do something now in case he's not alive next time it snows. If I didn't do it now, and something happens to him,” she said. “ I'd never forgive myself for not making the most of the time we had."

Though Mason couldn’t verbally express his gratitude, his expression said it all. He played for about an hour in the snow, laughing and giggling as he touched the cold, white stuff.

Melodie thanked the companies and people who contributed to making it happen. "I am so grateful to everyone who helped us. Things like this just don't happen to me. I'm so lucky that I could make this happen for Mason."

She said she is grateful to have had the opportunity to see her son so happy. “Watching him was amazing; I will remember it forever."
