“Special Spaces is an incredible group of people who come together to do amazing acts of love. They offer themselves to create a dream bedroom for a child & a family they have never met. Each time I enter that special space I thank God for the gift of the people that came together to give my daughter a place of comfort. In the midst of so many struggles there are consolations & showers of blessing that come.”

– Rebecca’s Mom

“I am beyond grateful to all the volunteers and to your organization. When Dylan first got diagnosed I was lost and didn’t know how we were going to get through the nightmare that was ahead of us. We have constantly been supported by people like you who help us find a way to smile at our lowest points. There are not enough words for me to put together that will ever stress how grateful I am to your organization and the team of people who worked on our home.”

– Dylan’s Mom

“My time with Special Spaces has filled my heart in ways I didn’t expect. I cherish our projects with each and every family, and am continually honored to be included in their fights against cancer. Our Special Spaces children are so strong, and I am beyond blessed to help bring joy and hope to them and their families.”
