A terminally ill boy who may not get to see another Christmas was treated to a surprise snowy winter wonderland by his devoted mum.
Melodie Williams, 41, from Rowley Regis near Dudley in the West Midlands, asked local businesses to help with the surprise after deciding she had to make the most of the time she had left with her three-year-old son, Mason.
The toddler – who has born with half a heart and needs a heart and lung transplant – awoke to find 400 litres of snow, lights, trees and decorations in his front garden.
Melodie said: "I just had to do something now in case he's not alive next time it snows.
"If I didn't do it now, and something happens to him I'd never forgive myself for not making the most of the time we had."
Local snow company, Snowbusiness, imported real snow for Mason to play in, while the nearby Asda superstore donated lights, trees and decorations.
His mum said Mason was delighted by his surprise and spent over an hour playing in the snow.
She added: "When he woke up and stepped out the front door he was so shocked.
"He laughed and giggled as he touched the snow, he can't speak but I knew he was loving his treat.
"Watching him was amazing, I will remember it forever."
