Katalina Covarrubias, a five-year-old girl diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, currently shares a bedroom with her siblings at home. Her biggest wish is to have a place to herself.
On Saturday, Make A Wish and volunteer Union Carpenters surprised her with an 80-sqft playhouse in her own backyard.
Union carpenters from Local 805 built Katalina a custom playhouse that features three distinct areas: a music and dance area, a play area and a “crafting corner” to supplement Katalina’s love for crafting.
Make A Wish Foundation said that the five-year-old was diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Lymphoma in 2020.
Katalina is currently in remission and in a maintenance phase, doing Chemo daily at home with quarterly visits to the hospital for a stronger Chemo dose.
Make A Wish said that Katalina is a happy, caring, silly girl who wants to be a scientist to help find a cure for Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Every night, she prays for kids with cancer.
