Young Patient and Family Receive A Backyard Makeover

Young Patient and Family Receive A Backyard Makeover
Local Businesses Team Up to Give to A Family
MACON, GA (Tuesday, March 27, 2012) – A patient from The Children's Hospital at The Medical Center of Central Georgia and his family were chosen by Cutting Edge Landscaping for the local business's annual Backyard Makeover project. Joshua Thornton, a 10-year-old oncology patient, and his family are currently having their backyard made over with the installation of new plants, sod and other landscaping, irrigation, basketball goals and a play area, and a new fence and deck/patio.
Cutting Edge Landscaping has worked with numerous local vendors to procure all of the necessary materials, which have been generously donated. Each year, Cutting Edge Landscaping chooses a family from central Georgia for its Backyard Makeover project.
Media is invited to visit the family's home to document the progress before a grand reveal is scheduled on Friday, March 30 at 10 a.m. with the family, and employees from Cutting Edge Landscaping, MCCG and other local businesses who've donated to the cause.
The family's address is 204B Feagin Mill Rd. in Warner Robins
