Our most recent makeover features Liliana!
This dainty beauty (on the left) is Liliana. She is full of life and joy. Her smile is contagious and melts the hearts of those who work with her. She loves Disney princesses, dancing, singing, swimming and playing with her favorite toys. She enjoys going to school and aspires to be a nurse and a rock-star when she grows up. Luckily for the world, rock-stars and nurses are in high demand!
At the young age of 5, Liliana has fought more battles that most of us endure through adulthood. When she was three-years-old, her parents were hit with the devastating news that she had cancer. The surreal moment when a team of doctors uttered that horrific word. Cancer. An Oncologist gave her the official diagnosis of B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Before completion of the makeover, her room did not provide easy access to her belongings. The design of her closet was not assembled in an organized, easily accessible fashion.
Her room has now become an oasis for her to escape to. Built in low shelves, a multi-shelved closet, and stairs to the top bunk of her bunk bed are all included, to provide easy access to every part of her room!
After completing this makeover, it was a delight to see Lily’s face brighten up, and see her smile! Every child deserves a bedroom to call their own and fall in love with. We are so glad to be a part of her journey to recovery, and provide this service for her. We are so honored to work with this incredible organization and help enhance the lives of so many children in need. We are already starting work on another SOARD project, so stay tuned for more updates from us!
