CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) — A young Cheektowaga boy fighting cancer received an amazing gift.
Four-year-old Alex Tingly was diagnosed with leukemia in December.
His family reached out to the Make-a-Wish Foundation to go to Disney World, but his doctor said he couldn’t go.
Leaders with the company PuppySpot decided to step in and donate a puppy to Alex.
Alex’s mother says it was an amazing gift for a special child.
Alex has named his new dog “Blue” after the dinosaur in the Jurassic Park series.
