Neighbors entertain child while he undergoes cancer treatment

Neighbors juggle, sing songs and hold hand-stand races on child’s front yard to entertain him as he is stuck indoors while undergoing cancer treatment

  • Quinn Waters was left house-bound after being diagnosed with brain cancer
  • Stem cell transplant and high dose of chemo wiped out boy’s immune system
  • Friends and strangers have pooled their creative talents to put a smile in his face
  • Trucks, jugglers and musicians have stopped by his window in Weymouth, Mass

A community have been performing tricks, singing songs and driving trucks past the yard of a house-bound cancer-stricken toddler in an effort to boost his spirits.   

Quinn Waters, three, from Weymouth, Massachusetts, is in isolation after receiving a stem cell transplant earlier in June and a high dose of chemotherapy which wiped out his immune system.

The three-year-old was diagnosed with medulloblastoma – a form of brain cancer – in April and has been stuck in his home and on a restricted diet as a result of the punishing regime of treatments.

But friends and strangers alike have been stopping by his front window on a daily basis to greet and entertain him in a bid to try and help him enjoy life despite his medical problems.

Whether it’s someone performing a song, a juggling trick or just driving by to honk, Quinn will watch on elatedly by his room’s window as the show unravels before his eyes.

Mother Tara Waters, 42, who is a police officer with the Quincy Police Department, said: ‘Quinn was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year, just a few days after his birthday on February 3.

‘His restrictions include a low-bacteria diet, so fruit with hard skins that can be thoroughly washed and are grown in US only, no frozen yogurt, no soft drinks from machines, no popcorn, no ice.

‘He does walk freely, however at night he is attached to a feeding tube machine because what he ingests orally is not enough to sustain his weight.

‘The visits started when a friend of mine who is a musician reworded the song The Mighty Quinn to fit Quinnie and came to sing for him while he watched from his window.

‘Then my co-workers on the Special Operations Unit were in the area doing a funeral escort and stopped by to say ”hi”, and from then on the ‘Quinn-Dow’ kind of snowballed.

One man dressed as Superman and paid Quinn a visit to entertain him while he was quarantined in his home 

Emergency services personnel came by to try and boost Quinn’s spirit by visiting him at his front window and performing in his yard 

‘Some strangers have visited, like country singer and local radio host Ayla Brown. 

‘I haven’t asked anyone who visits to do it, they are doing it out of love for Quinn and kindness of their hearts.

‘People have been so amazing, the sons of the Quincy Police Swat team had a massive water balloon fight through the window with Quinn and he loved it.’

According to Tara, Quinn could be out of isolation at the end of August, depending on variations in his white blood cell count.

Meanwhile, he’s able to experience a ‘normal’ life thanks to the efforts of members of his community.

Tara said: ‘Every little or huge visit makes Quinn’s day.

Some neighbors did hand-stands and other did wheelbarrow races as part of a community push to cheer up the ill boy

‘It’s his window to the world and it’s done him well after being in treatment inpatient at the children’s hospital, where he only interacted with his parents and the doctors.

‘It’s good that he can socialize and stay a little ‘normal’ through the window.

‘So, out of a terrible disease comes some good in the world and Quinn has had experiences some kids never have.

‘He doesn’t ask to go outside or get mad he can’t, he doesn’t pity himself, he has the best outlook on life and laugh and plays until bedtime.

‘His phrase is ‘this is the best day ever’ which he repeats multiple times every day.’

Members of a local community have been gathering on a Quinn’s front yard to greet and entertain him while hes in isolation for cancer treatment

Neighbors bash Emily Ratajkowski, millionaire hubby for ‘dodging rent’

People are getting ugly when it comes to model Emily Ratajkowski and her filmmaker husband allegedly not paying rent on their Noho loft thanks to a legal loophole meant to protect struggling artists.

Neighbors of the model were furious Sunday in the wake of a Post report that she and her hubby, filmmaker Sebastian Bear-McClard, who are worth millions of dollars, have stiffed their landlord, claiming protection under the state’s Loft Law, according to the building’s owner.

Bear-McClard, who began subletting the pad in 2013, hasn’t paid a penny of the $4,900-a-month rent since his lease expired in 2017, the landlord has said.

Ratajkowski and her husband have been married since February 2018, and she now lives with him there.

The landlord says he has been cheated out of $120,000 since the 2017 lease expired.

“It’s pathetic,” said 62-year-old musician Joseph Vera, who lives near the couple’s home at 49 Bleecker St. “The idea that one of these wealthy individuals is exploiting the system to save what, for him, is chump change, is a kick in the a– to the people who made Bleecker Street what it is.”

Another artist, who lives at 49 Bleecker, called for their eviction.

“It’s really unfair… This guy (Bear-McClard) is a double-insult to our street. He’s a moneyman who can easily pay his rent and just chooses not to,” said the neighbor, who wouldn’t give her name.

“I hope he gets evicted as soon as possible so that his apartment can go to someone more deserving — maybe someone with a little humility.”

Detractors also took to Instagram to bash the stunner.

“Tell your millionaire husband to pay rent and stop using loopholes meant for low income families,” wrote nevekizm under a selfie of the model posted Friday.

Another user raged on a selfie of the couple posted Feb. 14, “Can y’all teach me how to ripoff my landlord? I’m tired of paying rent when I could be using my money to take lavish vacations.”

Michael Kozek, lawyer for Bear-McClard, said in Sunday’s Post, “Mr. McClard is fighting to save his home, which he has lived in for years.

“He’s an artist. Born and raised New Yorker and a child of artists who themselves fought to save their homes, including under the Loft Law.”

Police Crashed Gavin Rossdale’s House Party After Neighbor’s Noise Complaint


The rock star’s neighbor allegedly made the complaint because he played music too loud during his house party on Tuesday, August 22.

At the age of 51, Gavin Rossdale is still partying like a rock star. The Bush frontman hosted a party at his residence in San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles earlier this week, but he had to cut it short after cops suddenly showed up, TMZ reported.

The ex-husband of Gwen Stefani landed in hot water after a neighbor complained about the noise coming from his bash. The site further claimed that the complaint was made relatively early, around 10:15 P.M. when the singer played loud music. Upon police’s arrival, Gavin was reportedly very cooperative and respectful when discussing the complaint. He even jokingly told the officers, “I was just breaking it up, anyway.”

Gavin bought his bachelor pad for $7.6 million in May last year, a month after splitting from Gwen Stefani. The two share custody of their three children, 11-year-old Kingston James McGregor, 9-year-old Zuma Nesta Rock and three-year-old Apollo Bowie Flynn.

While the “Hollaback Girl” hitmaker has now moved on with Blake Shelton, Gavin is said to be dating model Sophia Thomalla. “Gwen is really happy for Gavin. She’s met Sophia and she really likes her,” a source told HollywoodLife.com. “Leaving Gavin and going through a divorce was the most painful thing gwen has ever had to deal with, and she was really angry at him for a long time.”

“But if they hadn’t split, then she wouldn’t have gotten invloved with Blake, so she tries to see the breakup in a positive light–it led her meeting her soulmate,” the source continued. “She and Gavin are in a good place now and she wants nothing but the best for him.”

Gavin has been spending a lot of time in his home and studio to work on new music as of late. His band Bush is back on the music scene. First formed in 1992, the four-piece band split up in 2002 before reuniting again in 2010.
