“Harlow and I are cleaning her room tonight and it is the greatest reminder of all the amazing people that have touched our lives!! Who would of thought how perfect her room would be for ‘home-schooling’ .. reading in her hanging chair everyday .. homework at her gorgeous desk!! This room brings so much joy!!! And we love it even more then the first time we saw it!!”

“Thank you so much for everything. You all went so above and beyond anything that we would have expected. It meant so much to us – especially on such an emotionally difficult day. Thank you for giving us some reprieve and lifting our spirits. And the next morning when I was staring down a huge to do list, I ate a massive piece of that cake for breakfast! We will forever be fans of Special Spaces and when all of this over, I would love to volunteer with it. Would pretty much be my dream volunteer opportunity.”

– Isla’s Mom

“Thank you for making Lucy feel as though she’s gained something so wonderful in the midst of losing a lot this year – losing her hair, losing time with her friends, losing the ability to run and play. The whole experience put some wind in our sails and was way beyond what we imagined. Dear reader, please check out Special Spaces. This nonprofit is 100% dependent on donations and volunteers. We cannot wait to be done with cancer, and be able to give back to other families by supporting Special Spaces financially and with our time because we know first hand how much it means.”

– Lucy’s Mom
