Photos: Breezy's Bedroom Makeover Reveal

Brianne "Breezy" Bochenek, 10, and her four other siblings received dream room makeovers thanks to San Ramon-based nonprofit Special Spaces.

The Bochenek family was nothing but smiles last Saturday as all five kids received the bedrooms of their dreams from a local nonprofit that offers room makeovers to children suffering from life-threatening diseases.

After a year-long battle with bone cancer, 10-year-old Brianne "Breezy" Bochenek recently learned she was cancer-free. San Ramon-based nonprofit Special Spaces, which offers children who are fighting life-threatening diseases with dream room makeovers, selected her to be their tenth recipient.

Nearly 20 volunteers spent three days working on three rooms in which the five children share. 

Breezy, who shares a room with her sister Brooklyn, got a "Hollywood glam" room, while their brother Brenen, 13, received a guitar-themed room. Siblings Bryce, 19, and Brittney, 18, both away at college, will get to relax in their beach-themed room when they return home.

Check out the photos above to see the kids' reactions to their beautiful rooms along with the volunteers that made it possilble.

You did a great job of describing Breezy's and Brookelyn's room, Debbie, but, I'm still speechless. It's absolutely stunning. I can only imagine how it looks in person. Blue (and all of the varied hues) is my "signature color", so I was particularly taken with the girls' room. Just stunning. And, that ceiling light is absolutely amazing. Wow. Just wow! All I can say is, a certain someone, who shall remain nameless, is going to have to share the paper towel roll after Thanksgiving dinner this year. : ) Soooo very much to be thankful for. SO VERY MUCH. God is good. Stan and Debbie - wishing you and your incredible children continued blessings as this holiday season approaches. It's such a blessing to know you all. And, I'm going to stop typing now before my tears get the better of me. I have a million things to do today, including beating the Costco madness. Only Costco has a full parking lot 3 minutes after the store opens. So, there's no crying during Saturday errands! lol! Incredible job, Special Spaces!!! Great job also on the guitar room and even seeming to create more space in the "bedroom that wasn't".

What blessings abound! The room is glamorous and I think I'll grab a sleeping bag and sleep on the floor one night just to enjoy that neat T,V. with the girls ( and have those soft lights above the dropped crown molding glowing.) Thank you so much all you generous and talented people who made it possible. Brookelyn and Breezy's Memaw
