Anna Bakotic, 11, of New Lenox, got a free bedroom makeover from Special Spaces Chicagoland. Due to her life-threatening medical condition, her bedroom has become her sanctuary, Sun-Times Media reports.
On March 14, Special Spaces Chicagoland, a non-profit charity, arranged for a bedroom makeover for New Lenox's 11-year-old Anna, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia two years ago.
Volunteers from Naperville's Crayons Gone Wild, Special Spaces, the Home Depot worked from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to get the room in shape. According a Sun-Time Media report, Anna's room was decorated in pink, black and white—the colors she had selected. Helping Hands Therapy, 185 S. Marley Road, helped to sponsor the makeover together with Home Depot in Naperville, 1-800-Got Junk? Chicagoland.
