Diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia shortly after he turned two years old, Ben Layton bravely battled the disease through chemotherapy, radiation, and a bone-marrow transplant. Sadly, all that medicine could offer was not enough to save Ben's young life. Aware that he was going to die, Ben daydreamed about the new life he would have after his death and was certain that he would receive not only angel wings, but red angel wings - his favorite color. Ben received his wings on May 29, 2002, just three months after his fourth birthday.Work out when and for how long to visit Ben's Red Swings Community Playground and other Salisbury attractions using our handy Salisbury trip itinerary planner.
Inspired by Ben's bravery and in celebration of his spirit, the Ben's Red Swings Community Playground idea was born. The red swings recall Ben's red angel wings and will help all children who play here to share in the soaring joy of childhood.
