WEYMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) - The sights and sounds of first responders brought a whole lot of joy to a 3-year-old battling brain cancer in Weymouth on Thursday.
Quinn Waters can’t leave his home as he recovers from chemotherapy, which left his immune system weak, so South Shore Hospital emergency personnel greeted him at his window.
“It’s a beautiful thing that we can come and make his day,” said Tim Ruthier, South Shore Hospital EMT.
The first responders are just the latest group to pay Quinn a visit.
Quinn’s father, Jarlath Waters, says these visits have kept his son’s spirits up.
“My wife and I are convinced it’s done him a whole lot of good,” Jarlath said. “He could have been stuck in the house looking at the four walls around him and now he’s got a window to the world.”
The window has become a hot spot for visitors, so Quinn’s family has begun booking guests.
A blood drive being held in Quinn’s honor will take place Sept. 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mad Hatter, located at 969 Washington St. in Weymouth.
