HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - A Hampton boy who is fighting cancer got a big surprise Saturday.
Volunteers with the Roc Solid Foundation and We Promise Foundation built a new playground for five-year-old Reginald Charity III. Reginald was recently diagnosed with leukemia.
Chick-Fil-A and Couture Cupcakes donated food for the volunteers and the boy's family.
"We saw the truck pull up, Roc Solid, he knew his playground was coming, and he just screamed, and just to see him happy gave me tears of joy because there have been some days that he wasn't so happy because of how he felt or some of the challenges he's been facing," said Rita Charity, Reginald's mother.
"They're going through an adult battle, no fault of their own. And what Roc Solid and We Promise Foundation do is we make sure that the children don't lose the act of play," said Eric Newman, chief play officer.
Roc Solid's Play It Forward program builds play sets for local children battling cancer. They plan to build more than 20 playgrounds this year.
