One of the great bastions of childhood is a dream house. It’s a place where a child can feel safe.

A personal kingdom they can rule and what they say goes. Children often dream of this secure haven they can call their own.

8 year-old Lorenzo Andrade-Cruz was one such child and his dream house was brought into reality.

Volunteers from two states rallied together in a concerted effort led by Jamie’s Dream Team to make this boy’s dream tangible.

Lorenzo was diagnosed with ALD (Adrenoleukodystrophy) which is a hereditary condition that damages the membrane that insulates the nerve cells in the brain.

Lorenzo unfortunately lost two brothers to this condition. Jamie Ward, leader of the aforementioned Dream Team heard about Lorenzo’s condition from a friend.

“Lorenzo is so sweet.” Ward said.

“I won’t be able to walk or talk but I would love a treehouse” Ward recalled Lorenzo saying.

Lorenzo’s sweet nature coupled with his recognition of his condition spurred the Dream Team even more.

All that passion paid off. It is Spider-Man themed and comes with a bunk bed, a table with chairs, iPads, an Xbox and more!

Jamie and her army of kind-hearted volunteers show us that we can make dreams come true.

Hard work, commitment and kindness are more powerful than any wishing star or bit of fairy dust. These people truly made a dream come true.
