She is a 12 year old girl grieving the loss of her little brother, Freddie to cancer. It was our pleasure and true honor to be asked to help Yaretsy (Yaree – to friends) through this difficult time. We truly enjoyed listening to her creative ideas and working with her to design the bedroom of her dreams!
Yaree’s connection to Freddie will forever be a strong eternal bond. With the new challenge of living without Freddie in the physical world; Yaree truly embraced creating her perfect space to grow, learn and remember her brother in the best ways. Yaree took their bond over soccer, learning and a family vacation to Disney World to incorporate her favorite memories and future dreams into her brand new room. She created a space where she could concentrate on school work, display all her favorite photos of herself, friends and family while recreating the starry sky she fell in love with in the Disney castle with Freddie by her side.
We'd like to send an ENORMOUS thank you to our volunteers who helped build Yaree's project and those who have worked behind the scenes for two years to get us to this point. This was such a labor of love from all our volunteers!
