Kiwanis renovate bedroom of teen with cancer


Faith Brown, 13, saw her new bedroom for the first time on Saturday during the unveiling of Project Pleasant Dreams, a project by the Kiwanis Club of Spring Hill that, through donations and fundraising, renovates the bedroom of a child who is fighting a debilitating disease. Faith was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, after falling last year. Through generous donations of materials, labor, and skill by area businesses and a fundraising dinner hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Spring Hill, Faith's dream bedroom became a reality. The following contributed to the actual renovating of Faith's dream bedroom: Carpet World, DJ Nac Custom Cabinets, A & M Supply Co. in St. Petersburg, Home Depot, RAB Custom Upholstery, and Create More Space. Financial donations were also received from several donors. The Tampa Bay Rays also donated an Evan Longoria autographed ball that was given to Faith at Saturday's unveiling and a David Price autographed ball which was auctioned off at the Kiwanis fundraiser dinner.
