ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany girl had a huge surprise waiting for her in her backyard Tuesday evening. Team Summer is a non-profit group that connects kids with cancer to each other and provides special, individualized gifts to children battling cancer.

Volunteers built a play set for Hannah Kate Collins. She saw the finished product Tuesday evening.     

Hannah Kate has down syndrome and Leukemia. Her parents say they're grateful for the donation.

"On behalf of Hannah kate and our family it's just amazing when someone puts their arm around your shoulder and say we are praying for you," said the Collins family.     

The family travels to Atlanta every Monday for Hannah Kate's cancer treatments.
