A cancer-stricken girl’s wish for a dream playhouse might be fulfilled after all now that the local homeowner association, which initially blocked the request, said it is trying to find a compromise.
The story of Ella Schultz, 6, made headlines after her Make-A-Wish request — a backyard playhouse — was rejected by a local homeowner association, according to local news station KCTV 5 News in Kansas City.
Originally, the team at the Make-a-Wish foundation managed to get construction company JE Dunn to donate time and materials, according to a spokeswoman for JE Dunn.
But the plan hit a snag when the Stone Homeowner’s Association initially said the playhouse violated certain neighborhood rules, according to an emailed statement.
For the past few days, Ella has been treated for her cancer at the University of Kansas hospital.
A new statement from the Stone Homeowner’s Association suggested the girl might be able to arrive home to find a new playhouse in the yard.
