Northwestern Mutual employees and other volunteers worked with the Roc Solid Foundation to build it for Xavier, who is battling leukemia. As kids are kept isolated while getting treatment the play set will allow him to have fun and make him feel less lonely.

"It's amazing to be able to give an opportunity to keep providing the incredible experience they do for kids. This is an opportunity for temporary relief and to keep their mind off treatment," said Jeff Salazar.

Jessica Childress his mother was speechless after seeing the play set that was built especially for her son. She was very much moved by their charity work."Blessed, happy, appreciative.When you're in this situation, you see everything as a good thing," she said.
