The warm water soothes Antonio’s muscles – the perfect combination of therapy and relaxation. He settles into his favorite spot in the tub, surrounded by his family.
Antonio is diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy and needs a wheelchair to get around. He asked for a gift to ease the discomforts of his life-threatening medical condition. Something to help him restore his energy and physical mobility.
Make-A-Wish® Minnesota turned to Marquis and its local dealer, Valley Pools and Spas, to grant Antonio’s wish for a hot tub.
A crew of more than 20 volunteers from local companies and Make-A-Wish help build and install the hot tub complete with a gorgeous gazebo.
Antonio’s Make-A-Wish experience continues to change his life. With his new hot tub Antonio, can continue his physical therapy in his own home. Now he can spend, with his family, those hours that once seemed so solitary every time he slips into the warm water.
This wish is part of the national In the Spirit of a Wish program, created by Marquis to benefit
Make-A-Wish chapters across the country.
