Fort Myers couple inspires people to help kids with cancer with amazing Christmas display

One Lee County couple, Tammy and David Mcquademake, is inspiring people to help kids with cancer and they are doing it with an amazing Christmas display.

The Christmas-crazed couple opens the gates to their Fort Myers home off Ranchette Rd. every holiday season to share their labor of love.

“This was something we wanted to bless the community with,” David said.

“We love being able to give and the way the community comes together,” Tammy said.

The couple says the smiles on the faces of children make the countless hours spent setting up the lights show worth it, especially for a boy with cancer, Issac.

“Isaac last summer was diagnosed with Leukemia,” said Sophia O’Brien Merced, who is the mother of Issac. “But he’s staying strong through it all.”

Gates are open for the McQuade Family Christmas Light Show from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. each night at 11619 Ranchette Rd. Starting this Saturday, families can also take pictures with Santa.

It is all free, but the McQuades ask for donations for the Naples boy battling cancer. These donations made at the display this year will help cover the medical costs for Issac, 5 years old, which is something that puts a smile on his mother’s face.

“It’s very thoughtful and it really is amazing,” Sophia said. “That there’s people out there that care to help a family like ours.”

Part of the tradition of sharing, caring and holiday spirit, showing support for Southwest Florida families in need.

“It pressed on my heart,” Tammy said, “that we should help them.”
