Cherokee Region ‘mansion’ Treehouse Handed to A 3-Year-Old Boy with Cancer!

Townelaker Three-year-old Austin Herre, a brave young boy from Cherokee County battling leukemia, recently received a heartwarming gift that turned his wish into a reality. Austin, who has spent much of his life in hospitals since his diagnosis a little over a year ago, had a dream of having a treehouse. Make-A-Wish Georgia granted his wish, and what was created can only be described as a “tree mansion.”

Austin’s father, Chad Herre, shared that Austin has always had a love for the outdoors and enjoys playing outside. The family believed that a treehouse would be the perfect wish for him. Make-A-Wish Georgia collaborated with New South Construction to achieve Austin’s dream.

Kelly Thomas from New South Construction mentioned that many volunteers and subcontractors generously donated their time and materials for the project. The 850-square-foot structure, complete with three levels, is fully furnished and decorated with everything Austin loves, from dinosaurs to firefighter gear.

The treehouse features a comfy loft, an escape hatch to the bottom deck, and an outdoor play area accessible by a bridge. The dedication ceremony included a special ribbon-cutting event, with Austin’s firefighter family and nurses from Children’s Hospital in attendance to celebrate this special occasion with him.
