On Monday, members of the Phoenix Fire Department will build a playhouse for 5-year-old Phoenix boy, Ori Wright, who has been battling Leukemia since the age of 2.

Last spring, he was referred to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Arizona for a wish by a social worker from Phoenix Children's Hospital. His wish was to have a playhouse that resembles a real firehouse.

"We are thrilled that the Phoenix Fire Department is going to take part in helping grant Ori's wish," said Elizabeth Reich, president and CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Arizona.

The Phoenix Fire Department has a long history with the Make-A-Wish foundation of Arizona, dating back to the 1980s when they helped grant the first official wish for a Phoenix boy named Frank "Bopsy" Salazar.
