“I have seen first hand the incredible work that Special Spaces Buffalo does. The kindness, caring and attention to detail that goes into each and every room is extraordinary. To watch the children as they see their special space for the first time is heartwarming and a true blessing. These children, who are in the fight of their lives, have a special space to spend their precious time thanks to these wonderful volunteers. But, more than that – these children know they are not alone, they are loved and cared for by so many. We are all lucky to have Lynn and her team in our community.”

– Mary, Founder of Totally Buffalo – Special Spaces Sponsor

“Special Spaces gave me the opportunity to completely transform my room.  My room has now become my sanctuary. It’s where I go to relax and cry when I get stressed out and pray when I need peace in my heart. Cancer is hard and it doesn’t make life any easier. But I know I can always resort to my room as a safe place, where I can escape the world for a little bit. I love my room and thanks to Special Spaces, I love it even more than ever. I pray that Special Spaces will be around for a very long time because every child going through cancer deserves the room of their dreams.”

– Tran, Dream Bedroom Recipient

“Special Spaces Buffalo gave our daughter Julia an amazing room where she could relax and heal when she came home from the hospital.  She still loves her dog-themed bedroom 8 years later! Thank you so much Special Spaces! We love you!“

– Kristin, Makeover Mom
