McKinzie, like a lot of little girls her age, loves to play dress up, have tea parties and play house with her little sister.

She was diagnosed with an enlarged heart last year and suffered a stroke. Well on her way to recovering she has a determined, energetic spirit that is truly contagious!

Once again our master carpenters built an amazing piece of furniture that is one of a kind! They constructed and armoire, with a roll out drawer to stand on and storage, to accommodate the girls new dress up wardrobe. A local artisan hand painted and upholstered it to create an absolutely stunning piece of furniture!

Six year old Analee loves the Disney princesses! Cinderella, Belle, Aurora and Snow White are her favorites. Analee suffers from ALL, a form of leukemia and not only spends many hours in her room recuperating, but is homeschooled as well.
Our Room For Joy team transformed her room into a storybook land highlighting different scenes from Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Artists created the inside of a castle, the inside of a forest cottage and a garden scene all in one room! Master carpenters built an amazing bed truly fit for a princess.

Cody's Room

Cody is 13 years old, and loves frogs, toads, lizards and all things slithery! He wants to be a herpetologist when he grows up, spending his life studying these creatures. Cody also loves dragons, and hoped that his new room would include a dragon, and be so cool that his brother-in-law would want to hang out there! Room for Joy created a bedroom that included a dragon and a whole lot more so that Cody could feel like he was living in an ancient castle. We predict that his brother-in-law will be spending a lot of time there!

Cody has an autoimmune disease that affects his digestive tract and lungs. He spent over 100 days in the hospital last year, with much of that time in intensive care. Because of his health, Cody is homeschooled, and has a classroom at home set up for his studies. Cody is an excellent student, and is interested in a lot of things, but his favorite subjects are Science and History. He especially enjoys studying ancient Egypt, focusing on King Tutankhaman.

Paloma's Room

Paloma is a very special eleven year old! Paloma's smile could light up the darkest room, she is an excellent student, and is the owner of a very positive attitude. She loves Tinker Bell, the color pink, shopping & movies, but especially Tinker Bell. When the nurses at Phoenix Children's Hospital asked Paloma why she loves Tink so much, she said that Paloma means dove in Spanish so maybe she loves Tinker Bell because of the way she flies around the world!

In October 2006, Paloma was diagnosed with Osteo Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer. Unfortunately, her cancer did not respond to treatment, and Paloma's right arm had to be amputated. She recently finished her chemotherapy, and was able to return to school this fall. To learn more about Paloma's journey, visit her site at Caring Bridge, http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/palomamarroquin

Room for Joy redecorated Paloma's room in a Tinker Bell inspired forest theme, complete with details straight out of Peter Pan!
