TESTIMONIALS

“Because of my Leukemia, my room is where I stay a lot. But Special Spaces gave me a place where I want to be all the time. I was very excited when I heard they would be doing my room! They asked me about the things I liked, but they gave me things I love. All the volunteers were so nice – they even played with my dog and took care of him during the day. Special Spaces outweighs a lot of the bad from my cancer and makes fighting easier – at least when I’m fighting from my Star Wars ship painting.”

– John, Special Spaces Recipient

“I really love and appreciate my room makeover. Not many people render me completely speechless, but your kindness, creativity and generosity did so. Out of everything in my life, the makeover event is one for the history books! Thank you so much for doing my room makeover. My room has officially become my most comfortable place in the world.”

– Thanks again, Will

“Dearest Special Spaces and Volunteers,
Words cannot express how grateful we are for the renovations you did for Will. We are in awe of what you created! He absolutely loves his new space. You lifted his spirits and we are forever grateful!”

– Jim and Michelle, Will’s Parents
